Motorcycle Accident Occurs After Colliding With Tractor-Trailer
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
motorcycle accident involving a tractor-trailer took place on Monday around 3:37 a.m. in West
Knoxville on Interstate 40. Tragically, the two people who were riding
on the motorcycle both passed away due to the accident. The man of the
tractor-trailer did not suffer injuries during the accident.
Since the accident is still being investigated, it is undetermined what
caused it. While motorcycle riders do not have the same protection of
passengers in cars, most ride defensively, as they want to avoid being
involved in an accident. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety, it was estimated by the federal government that the number of
deaths while riding motorcycles was at least 27% higher than that of cars
in 2014. Meanwhile, tractor trailers can also be dangerous. For example,
the IIHS also reported that while coming to a stop, tractor-trailers that
are loaded take 20-40% further than cars.
