James Andrew Eble II of Willits succumbed to fatal injuries in a Lake County motorcycle crash after colliding head-on with a pickup truck near Lucerne.
A Willits resident died in a Lake County motorcycle crash after colliding head-on with a pickup truck on the east side of Clear Lake.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office confirmed the motorcyclist’s identity as 43-year-old James Andrew Eble II of Willits.
The California Highway Patrol Clear Lake division reported that Mr. Eble traveled westbound on State Route 20 when his Harley Davidson motorcycle collided head-on with an eastbound Dodge 5500.
Preliminary findings suggest that Eble went at an unspecified speed when he veered across the solid double yellow lines into the eastbound lane.
Upon arriving at the scene, the CHP found both vehicles partially occupying the eastbound lane and the south shoulder of the road, approximately one mile east of Rosemont Drive.
Unfortunately, Mr. Eble succumbed to fatal injuries at the collision scene.
Meanwhile, the pickup truck operated by Spencer Langenback, 33, from Redding, with 26-year-old John Tirri from Cottonwood as his passenger, emerged from the incident unharmed.

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.
