San Diego, CA (February 16, 2023) – El Cajon resident Dana Terry passed away on Monday after being involved in a motorcycle accident near the intersection of Navajo Road and Bisby Lake Avenue in the Lake Murray neighborhood.

According to local news sources, the motor vehicle collision occurred at around 6:00 a.m. on February 13.

According to the authorities, a woman was driving a 2020 Kia Soul while she was heading on Bisby Lake Avenue. While passing through the intersection of Navajo Road, she allegedly ran a red traffic light and made a left turn in front of a 1986 Yamaha SRX-6 motorcycle that was driven by Terry. As a result, the two vehicles collided.

The motorcyclist was fatally injured in the accident and pronounced deceased at the scene.

The San Diego Police Department officers are continuing their investigation into the collision.

Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in California

San Diego, CA – Fatal Motorcycle Accident Reported on Navajo Rd near Bisby Lake AveStatistics gathered from the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System show that a total of 4,762 motorcycle crashes were reported across the state in 2019. These accidents took the lives of more than 470 people. Motorcycle accidents can be particularly devastating due to the fact that riders have very little protection during accidents.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration conducted a study on the factors that lead to fatal car accidents and found that driver error and poor decision-making are the most common contributing causes. According to the findings of the study, drivers who disobey stop signs or red lights are the primary contributors to fatalities that occur in intersections. These drivers are responsible for nearly one-third of all fatal collisions. Intoxicated drivers, drivers who were distracted by something other than the road, and drivers who failed to yield the right of way were also significant contributors.
