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.
The accident occurred in the evening of May 18. Authorities are still investigating the details of the incident, but apparently the motorcycle and a car collided at an intersection. The driver of the vehicle was uninjured, but the male and female passenger were both initially transported to the hospital for their injuries. The man was taken to ICU, and the female passenger was admitted with injuries not considered life-threatening.
The man later died at the hospital. The woman was injured but survived. The uninjured driver stayed on the scene and was cooperating with authorities. Municipal traffic authorities responded too and processed the accident scene immediately. A police lieutenant later updated reporters with the news of the man’s passing.
The effects of a motorcycle crash extend beyond the minor disruption of a drive. In Connecticut, victims of motor vehicle accidents have the right to contact an attorney for help to explore their options to seek damages resulting from an accident. If another party is found to be at fault, a victim is typically entitled to monetary awards for the injuries, damages and distress sustained as a result of the crash.
