Motorcyclist killed in Garden Grove traffic collision.

A 42-year-old motorcyclist died last week after his motorcycle collided with a car on Gilbert Street and Orangethorpe Avenue, Garden Grove, CA according to a news report in the Orange County Register.

The victim, identified as Adolph Amuriles, was traveling west on Orangethorpe approaching Gilbert when he collided with a 1997 Lexus EX 300 sedan traveling east on Orangethorpe, according to the article. The driver of the sedan, James Jangho Park, made a left turn on to Gilbert which is when the two vehicles collided. Amuriles was thrown from his 2006 Harley-Davidson Sportster and pronounced dead at the scene. Park suffered minor injuries but did not require hospitalization, the report said.

Officials are still investigating this accident.

Meanwhile, here are some tips for riders from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation:

Be visible:
• Remember that motorists often have trouble seeing motorcycles and reacting in time.
• Make sure your headlight works and is on day and night.
• Use reflective strips or decals on your clothing and on your motorcycle.
• Be aware of the blind spots cars and trucks have.
• Flash your brake light when you are slowing down and before stopping.
• If a motorist doesn’t see you, don’t be afraid to use your horn.

Dress for safety:
• Wear a quality helmet and eye protection.
• Wear bright clothing and a light-colored helmet.
• Wear leather or other thick, protective clothing.
• Choose long sleeves and pants, over-the-ankle boots, and gloves.
• Remember – the only thing between you and the road is your protective gear
