Crash on 405 North in LB this morning...
« on: 05/04/17 09:21AM »
...basically shut the freeway down.  Saw 1 car that had been rear-ended, behind a crashed white motorcycle (not sure how many vehicles were involved all together).  I saw a stretcher, but didn't see a bag; not sure of the rider's condition.  My coworker told me there have already been 7 accidents involving motorcycles just this morning.

Stay safe out there everyone. It does seem like there were more bikes than usual out on the freeway this morning.

Ok, so that explains the insane traffic. I didn't see the accident since I was hyper focused on splitting the carpool lane.

Weather's getting warmer + gas prices creeping up = Less experienced riders dusting the cobwebs off their bikes. 

Watch out for cages, and those displaying a lack of skills/gear on 2 wheels.
Every day is ride to work day!

Several cars crossing the double yellow this morning as well. Gotta keep the speed down, be focused and be in full control of your machine.

Lots of motorcycle accident on the morning news as said and I rode by 2 down in 1 accident on the 405 going south this afternoon in LA. Looked like the sportbike rider may have hit a cruiser in the fast lane. Cruiser rider wasn't looking good but would be ok and the sportbike guy wasn't moving but could have be out of caution. Lets be careful out there guys.
