Martinez Resident Killed After Falling off Back of Motorcycle

Motorcycle riding is a fun and exciting activity enjoyed by many Californians, but there’s no denying that it is also a dangerous activity, especially for passengers. Unlike drivers, passengers don’t have handlebars to grip. They often must hold onto the driver. However, if the passenger lets go, he or she could fall off the back of the bike and onto the roadway.

The 37-year-old Martinez woman fell from the back of the bike, was hit by a vehicle behind her and died instantly.
