Modesto Man Killed in Jamestown Motorcycle Crash on Highway 120

Jamestown, California – A 68-year-old Modesto man was killed in a big rig crash on Highway 120 on Saturday morning, police said.

As per the authorities, a man stopped his 1999 Harley Davidson Motorcycle on the north shoulder of eastbound SR- 120 to help another motorcyclist whose bike had disabled.

After assisting, the rider went back and started his motorcycle, entering the eastbound lanes of the highway.

The motorcyclist was then struck by a 2012 Kenworth big rig driven by Eric Roen of Knights Ferry in the No. 2 lane.

The accident occurred at around 11:50 a.m. just west of Green Springs Road.

The motorcyclist suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. His name was not disclosed pending family notification.

Police said the rider was wearing his helmet at the time of the accident.

Neither alcohol nor drugs appeared to be a factor in the crash.

Authorities closed the eastbound lane for about two hours as they investigated the incident.

An investigation is ongoing.

Arin Khodaverdian, CEO and Managing Attorney of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights. Swift action by an intelligent and experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

“Usually, clients hire me immediately after their first consultation because they quickly figure out that I will treat them like family. I lift a weight off their shoulders immediately. That is my job. We simply leave no stone unturned – period. We go after everyone and everything. There is no other way to ensure justice,” Mr. Khodaverdian states.

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. We have numerous other 6-figure settlements within 30 days. While these results are atypical and do not predict future outcomes, justice in these cases helped bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the families.”
