Sadly, another life has been taken too soon, and one family will mourn the loss of one of its own. Motorcycling, while an enjoyable hobby, does come with some extra risks. Some drivers pay less attention and don't see motorcycle drivers, and motorcycle drivers are more exposed to the roadway than people in cars. Recently, one man in Connecticut has lost his life as the result of a motorcycle crash.
A two-vehicle collision sent two individuals to the hospital on Sunday, Aug. 13. A Connecticut state trooper riding a motorcycle crashed into a car being driven by an elderly man. The motorcycle accident has left two individuals recovering from injuries suffered during the early morning event.
An early morning crash has led to serious injuries for one man. The Connecticut man was riding his motorcycle when it crashed into the back of an SUV. A recent news story gives more details about the tragic motorcycle crash and the status of the motorcycle rider.
The freedom of the open road is a significant appeal to bikers. Unfortunately, that freedom comes with certain costs. Among those costs are the potential to be injured in a motorcycle accident. Sometimes the accident doesn't only injure the driver of the motorcycle, as passengers can be harmed as well. In Connecticut, a recent event was covered in the news, telling the story of a biker and his passenger who were injured in a motorcycle crash.
There is a reason that awareness campaign signs urge drivers to watch out for bikers. It is because death or serious injury often occur as a result of a motorcycle crash. Since motorcyclists are more exposed to the road while they ride, they face an increased danger of personal injury should they become involved in an accident. Often a tragedy can be avoided with careful, sober driving. Unfortunately, in Connecticut a woman recently lost her life as a result of an apparent drunk driving incident.
Accidents while driving can be dangerous and take folks away from their families too soon. Safety on the road can mean life or death for drivers everyday. As the weather warms up, more motorcycles and drivers are on the road. The world suffered another sad loss recently when a man died from his injuries suffered in a motorcycle crash. The Connecticut man and his passenger were both injured in a crash with another vehicle.
Connecticut officials have responded to an increased number of accidents in recent weeks in which one or more motorcycles were involved. In a recent motorcycle crash, one man was killed and a woman seriously injured after a collision with an enclosed vehicle. In the aftermath of that event, two families are struggling to come to terms with what happened, and determining how to move forward.
When an individual is injured in a serious crash, the road to justice and fair compensation can take some time. It is frustrating to wait as a personal injury case makes its way through the courts, but a positive outcome is often worth that wait. Such is the case for a Connecticut man who recently agreed to a significant settlement after a 2015 motorcycle accident left him seriously injured.
When a Connecticut driver gets behind the wheel of a vehicle or begins to operate a motorcycle, he or she assumes a large number of responsibilities. Taking to the open road involves more than just getting from point A to point B; drivers must also take care to maintain safe road conditions for others with whom they share the road. That is also true in regard to passengers, as evidenced in a recent motorcycle accident that took the life of one person and injured another.
Motorcycle season is here again and sometimes we forget just how serious a motorcycle accident can be. These types of accidents happen in seconds and can be extreme devastating or fatal. What are some things that drivers need to keep in mind when they are on the road with motorcyclists?
