Beaumont, CA (September 19, 2023) – A 17-year-old motorcyclist, Daniel Bomberger of Cherry Valley, succumbed to fatal injuries in a Beaumont motorcycle crash. According to Patch, the accident occurred around 5:55 p.m. on September 5.
A 17-year-old motorcyclist succumbed to fatal injuries in a Beaumont motorcycle crash on Cherry Valley Boulevard, west of Union Road, near Hannon Road.
The San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner has identified the fatal motorcyclist in a Beaumont motorcycle crash earlier this month.
Authorities released the driver’s identity as 17-year-old Daniel Bomberger of Cherry Valley.
According to the sheriff’s office, on September 5, Daniel Bomberger tragically died at Loma Linda University Medical Center approximately one hour after the collision.
California Highway Patrol Officer Jason Montez reported that the incident happened on Cherry Valley Boulevard, west of Union Road, near Hannon Road, when the teenager riding a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle at high speed approached a stationary Nissan Sentra in the eastbound lanes.
The sedan attempted to make a lawful left turn onto a private driveway, as indicated by its turn signal.
However, the motorcyclist passed the sedan on the left. Simultaneously, the car’s driver executed the turn, resulting in a collision between the two vehicles.
Unfortunately, the impact ejected the motorcyclist from his bike, leading to life-threatening injuries that proved fatal.
Meanwhile, the 54-year-old Sentra driver of Thermal emerged unharmed from this Beaumont motorcycle crash.
Moreover, Montez clarified that the motorcyclist had crossed a double yellow line, with the solid line on his side signifying that passing was prohibited, although left turns were allowed.
J&M Tip: Under California Vehicle Code 21755, a motorist can overtake another vehicle from the right, provided it can be accomplished safely and without departing from the paved or primary section of the roadway.

More About Motorcycle Accident Liability
Motorcycle accidents usually cause more severe damage than other auto accidents. Motorcyclists are prone to sustaining major injuries because they are more exposed. Also, motorcycles are lighter and don’t provide much protection. Most motorcycle accidents are caused by the following:
- Compact and less visible on the road
- Loss of control due to road debris
- Motorcyclists are exposed to road and other vehicles
- Prone to wobbling
- Unskilled motorcyclists who don’t have proper licenses
However, motorcycle accident liability always falls on the negligent driver. Most of the time, both the motorcyclist and the other vehicle’s driver can be at fault. It all depends on who made careless road maneuvers, which contributed to the accident. Proving negligence can become challenging on your own. Fortunately, you can hire an experienced attorney for motorcycle accidents. A skilled lawyer can do more than just help build your case.
