No arrests have been made, but the situation is still under investigation and the cause is being attributed to the unlawful presence of a commercial vehicle on the narrow highway.

The California Highway Patrol reports that motorcycle fatalities are on the rise in California. In recent years, we have seen fluctuations in the number of accidents, due to the increased use of cell phones and texting devices, as well as the laws that prohibit such behaviors. Accidents also tend to increase around the holidays, due to greater traffic and a greater number of impaired drivers. But this recent rise is being attributed to other factors entirely.
