Bakersfield Motorcyclist Kenneth Lee Armstrong, 59, Killed in River Blvd, Bernard St Crash

Bakersfield, CA – According to KBAK, on Sunday, April 21, 2024, 59-year-old  Kenneth Lee Armstrong of Bakersfield lost control of his motorcycle and tragically passed away in the area of River Boulevard and Bernard Street. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) responded to the scene following reports of the crash at approximately 4:26 PM.

Preliminary investigations by the CHP revealed that the rider was traveling northbound on River Boulevard within the intersection of Bernard Street when, for reasons yet to be determined, he lost control of his Honda motorcycle.

The motorcycle veered off the roadway, colliding with a raised curb edge, two traffic signal power boxes, and a street sign before the impact ejected the rider from the motorcycle, resulting in his untimely death.

The circumstances surrounding the crash, including the potential involvement of alcohol or drugs, are currently under investigation by authorities.

Liability in Solo-Vehicle Collisions

In some circumstances, investigations can reveal that some portion of the liability for a solo-vehicle collision might fall upon other drivers in the vicinity of the accident or even unsafe roadway structures. Working through the particulars of liability to help victims and their families find proper compensation is one of the many services a personal injury attorney can provide.

Once liability has been established, a personal injury attorney can also negotiate on behalf of the victim with insurance companies, who will always seek to minimize the payout for any claim they cannot deny.
