One Killed, 1 Injured in Taft Motorcycle Accident on Sixth Street

Taft, California – One person was killed and another injured in a Taft motorcycle crash that took place late Saturday night in the 1100 block of Sixth Street, according to Taft police.

At around 11:50 p.m. December 26, authorities said a group of motorcycle riders were heading north on Sixth Street when one of them left the roadway and crashed into a curb.

The impact ejected both occupants of the motorcycle.

The driver, a 22-year-old Taft man, was flown to a Bakersfield hospital with critical injuries.

A passenger on the motorcycle, a 27-year-old Taft woman, died at the scene of the accident.

Authorities said speed and alcohol were suspected to be factors in the crash, which remained under investigation.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner 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 to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

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. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
