One of our local papers, the Standard Speaker, (www.StandardSpeaker.com) has reported that a fatal accident happened on Sunday involving a motorcycle and a car.
According to the article, the motorcycle was northbound on Route 309 when a car was turning left from another road onto 309. The impact caused the man to be thrown from the motorcycle and the car to spin. The motorcycle rider was flown to a local hospital, but later died from his injuries.
Route 309 was closed for about 3 hours. Charges against the driver of the car are pending an investigation.
This time of year, it’s important to stay alert as we share the road with motorcycles. Use your eyes and your mirrors to see what’s around. Check blind spots when you are changing lanes or turning at intersections. Remember to look, and look again.
If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may have a case. Contact the motorcycle accident attorneys at Michael J. O’Connor & Associates for a free review of your case.
