A St. Clair County resident was involved in an accident that could have ended his life October 30th. He was driving his motorcycle along Broadway in St. Louis and was stopped at a red light waiting to make a left turn onto Hoffmeister Ave. As the light turned green, he was struck from behind by a car and dragged 20 feet fracturing his hip socket and knee. He considers himself lucky to be alive and credits his survival to the fact that he was wearing a helmet. He hopes drivers are more cautious and aware of motorcycles on the road, but believe that the bend in the road on Broadway near Hoffmeister Avenue may have contributed to the motorcycle crash.
