Tulare, CA (July 30, 2020) – 38-years-old Dustin Rigsby, a resident of Bakersfield, sustained critical injuries on Wednesday, July 29th during a nighttime collision with a John Deere tractor at the intersection of Road 44 and Avenue 232 in the city of Tulare.

Based on official documents filed by crash investigators from the California Highway Patrol, the two-vehicle collision took place at approximately 9:00 p.m., a little west of Road 44., when the Yamaha motorcycle being driven by Rigsby crashed into a John Deere tractor that was hauling an industrial Air-Blast agricultural sprayer down the road.

The motorcycle reportedly collided with the left tire of the farming equipment. The force of the impact caused the motorcycle rider to be ejected from his bike and land in the middle of the roadway.

Emergency medical personnel arranged for the critically injured victim to be transported via a medical helicopter to Kaweah Delta Hospital for emergency treatment of severe crash-related injuries.

This accident is still under inquiry by officers from the California Highway Patrol. 

No additional details have been made publicly available at this time.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Tulare, CA - Motorcycle and Tractor Collide on Ave 232

In spite of the fact that just 3% of all currently registered motor vehicles in the United States are motorcycles, those who chose to ride them are accorded the very same courtesies and rights as any car or truck driving on a California roadway. 

That all roadways are shared with motorcycle riders appears to be a detail that is often overlooked by people who operate larger vehicles. A collection of accident data from across the United States that focuses on accidental injuries and deaths highlights the fact that, in 2016, upwards of 5,200 motorcycle riders, meaning both passengers and drivers, were killed in traffic accidents, and more than 90% of those victims were men.
