Turning vehicles are one of the biggest hazards that motorcyclists face on California's roads. Any time that two vehicles share the same lane -- at intersections, for instance, or when one vehicle is simply turning left across the other lane -- there's a serious risk of a crash. That's more serious for a motorcycle rider with his or her limited protection.
A California man is in police custody after he was involved in a shooting, a car chase and a deadly accident recently. The man was on parole, but he was being pursued by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. United States Marshals were also involved. It's not clear why he was considered to be at large.
