A single-vehicle crash was reported to happen in Bakersfield on Thursday, October 29th. California Highway Patrol is the lead investigator for the case. The crash involved a 2006 Harley-Davidson that was occupied only by one person, the driver, a 36-year-old man. It occurred on Roberts Lane near Sanford Drive, at around 4:47 p.m. The driver lost control of his motorcycle and ended up crashing into a nearby median strip. The impact of the crash threw him off his vehicle and led him to collide with a road sign located in the vicinity of the lane. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, succumbing to his fatal injuries.
Will Your Auto Insurance Cover Single-Vehicle Crash Injuries?
If you live in California and experienced a single-vehicle crash, whether or not your auto insurance will cover it depends on your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage ownership. If you have PIP coverage, then any damages or injuries incurred from your single-vehicle crash will be covered by this policy. But, if you don’t then you will have to deal with your damages out-of-pocket. However, that doesn’t mean that there is nothing you can claim from the insurance provider, although this highly depends on your insurance policy.
