A Texarkana man is dead after a fatal motorcycle accident. The Arkansas State Police report a 58-year-old man was killed when his motorcycle collided with another car in Texarkana this past Thursday. The crash occurred on the Arkansas side of Texarkana on Highway 71. The Arkansas State Police report the northbound motorcyclist collided with a car that attempted to make a left-hand turn onto a parking lot. The crash is still under investigation. It is unknown if charges will be filed.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warns motorcyclists of the danger on the roads, reporting that motorcyclists were at much greater risk of injury than drivers of passenger vehicles. Motorcyclists sustain more severe injuries that are often deadly. A major factor in deadly motorcycle accidents is that motorcycles are often unseen by inattentive motorists.
