On Friday, October 9th, a motorcycle crash was reported to have taken place in Irwindale. California Highway Patrol received information about the crash at around 2:40 p.m. The incident was found to have occurred on the 210 Freeway at Irwindale Avenue.
Eyewitness reports about the crash were conflicting, with some claiming that the motorcycle was hit by a big rig truck while others claimed a white Tesla was responsible instead. Nevertheless, neither vehicles were present at the scene. The motorcycle driver suffered from injuries of unknown severity and was transported to the nearest hospital. Several lanes of the freeway were closed while authorities conducted an investigation at the scene.
Can Misleading Eyewitness Reports Hinder Your Personal Injury Claim Process?
In general, it shouldn’t. This is because the eyewitness reports are more relevant for criminal courts if your case is also processed through it. However, their reports can influence your personal injury claim process, if it makes the at-fault party less clear. This only happens if you don’t have any recollection of the event yourself, as the victim. If you remember what happens clearly, then you shouldn’t have much issue in pinpointing who is responsible for your injury.
