Studies have shown that other motorists who fail to recognize or yield to an oncoming motorcycle cause a large portion of accidents involving motorized bikes. The Boston Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with Jason Stone Injury Lawyers explain how such an accident recently claimed the life of a 58-year-old man and left his 54-year-old wife seriously injured.
A story released by The Boston Globe states the incident occurred last Saturday night at approximately 11 p.m., at the intersection of Smithville and Meadow roads in the town of Spencer, Massachusetts. Reports indicate the victims were riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle through the intersection when a Ford Flex SUV being driven by a 41-year-old man struck them.
All three motorists who were involved were rushed to local hospitals, where the man driving the motorcycle was declared dead. His passenger and the driver of the Ford were both treated for injuries sustained in the crash.
Accidents like these leave many motorists and motorcyclists alike wondering what they can do to stay safe on the road and avoid a collision. Most experts agree that motorists should be more aware of motorcycles on the road by always looking twice, specifically for motorcycles, when moving in traffic.
Jason Stone’s team of Boston Personal Injury Lawyers would like to send their sympathies to the family of the man who was killed and would also like to wish his wife a speedy and full recovery from her injuries.
