Motorcycle accidents can be deadly, considering that the rider’s body is unprotected against dangerous forces.
In fact, a 4-year-old boy was recently killed due to his involvement in a motorcycle accident that happened near Woodville in Fresno.
Reports stated that Paul Martinez died after the motorcycle that he was riding on suddenly hit a cable strung across a dirt road along a private property.
Both the boy and the driver who was identified as Eduardo Martinez, 20, from Woodville, were ejected from the motorcycle along northwest of Road 168 and Avenue 168.
Reports said Paul was announced dead at the Sierra View District Hospital in Porterville. Meanwhile, Eduardo was rushed to the hospital to receive treatment for moderate to major injuries.
According to authorities, both of them were not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
