Motorcycle Accident Investigation is Underway
Local authorities are currently investigating the cause of the accident.
Motorcycle riders are more vulnerable to the dangers on the road in comparison to passengers of private cars. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, motorcycle riders have 16 times the risk of injury and 35 times the risk of a fatal crash in comparison to car passengers.
Although a variety of laws protects motorcycle riders, motorcycle accidents are still an inevitable occurrence. Some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents are distracted driving, speeding, drunk driving, reckless driving, bad weather, wrong-way driving, and failure to follow traffic laws.
