A motorcycle accident in Silverado Canyon caused the death of both the driver and passenger on the motorcycle. According to the Los Angeles Times, the motorcycle crash occurred when the motorcycle slid down an embankment and crashed into trees off the road.
The driver of the motorcycle, Donn LaVigne, was from Anaheim Hills, California. The woman passenger on the motorcycle who was also killed in the California motorcycle accident has not yet been identified by the California Highway Patrol.

Also, the families of both victims should look into hiring a California motorcycle accident lawyer to investigate whether there were any other potential causes to the California motorcycle crash.
