A motorcycle accident this morning in Granada Hills, California, has resulted in the death of a man in his 50s. The Granada Hills motorcycle accident occurred at about five o’clock this morning on the 118 freeway, when a motorcyclist collided with another car.
According to the Los Angeles Daily News, the entire freeway was closed this morning during the investigation, but reopened after a few hours. The California Highway Patrol has not yet disclosed the cause of the fatal motorcycle accident in Granada Hills.
One possible cause could be the rain that struck Southern California today. It has been raining for most of the day and we always see an increase in car and motorcycle accidents when it is raining. People often fail to take the rain into account when calculating stopping distance and turning speeds. This results in rear end collisions and cars that end up spinning out of control or fishtailing.
We highly recommend that you have your tire tread checked before driving in the rain, to make sure your tires are safe. This can help prevent a rain accident.
