Side strike leaves motorcyclist dead
Motorcyclists in Missouri likely either know of another cyclist who has been in an accident, or have been in an accident themselves. However, while accidents are not uncommon for motorcyclists, fatal motorcycle accidents are more of a rarity. The ratio of deadly motorcycle accidents to deadly car accidents shows that the lack of protection from a motorcycle can be problematic.
One such deadly accident is currently still undergoing investigation. The accident has left the motorcyclist dead. He was declared dead at the hospital. The driver of the vehicle was treated for minor injuries and is expected to recover. The cause of the accident is currently unknown, which is why no charges have been filed yet.
According to the information that is currently known, the motorcycle was initially traveling eastbound. However, the vehicle of the other driver ended up turning into the motorcycle’s path. This caused the man to hit the front of the SUV, leaving him with fatal injuries. The reason behind why the driver swerved in front of him is one of the things that this investigation is trying to uncover.
Dealing with fatal motorcycle accidents can be traumatizing for the people left behind. This is especially true if it is an accident like this one, where the exact circumstances behind it are currently unknown. Having an experienced attorney on one’s side may potentially make the difference when it comes to being able to fight for compensation and succeed.
