The "Ride of the Century" event proves to be dangerous at the fault of irresponsible motorcyclists. On the afternoon of September 13th, the event was in full swing when a male operating a motorcycle popped a wheelie causing him to lose control of his bike and cross over into the other lane on Interstate 64. He struck another motorcycle, injuring the driver and passenger who were transported to a local hospital.
In 2013, cameras captured motorcyclists driving erratically during "Ride of the Century". The video showed drivers running red lights, driving on the wrong side of the road, and doing stunts along interstates. Authorities made several arrests and towed over 60 motorcycles.
Every motorcyclist is made aware of the dangers of riding a motorcycle, but the dangers significantly increase when the driver breaks the laws established to keep people safe. The Missouri Highway Patrol Statistical Analysis Center states that in 2012, 2,404 people were injured from motorcycle accidents and 104 people were killed.
