A Monday afternoon motorcycle crash led to the deaths of two people. A three-wheeled motorcycle was traveling on East River Road northbound when it collided with a minivan at the intersection of 79th Way. According to authorities, the female driver of the minivan attempted to make a right turn when the impact occurred. Tragically, the crash resulted in the death of the 52-year-old man that was driving the motorcycle and his female passenger. The driver of the minivan and a child passenger was taken to the hospital for minor injuries. The accident is being investigated and police will release the victim’s identities at a later date.
All auto accidents can be frightening and the results can vary to include property damages, injuries, and death. One type of auto accident that has a greater chance of resulting in serious injuries and death is that of motorcycle crashes. Some people believe that motorcyclists operate their vehicles dangerously causing the accidents. While the reckless driving of the motorcyclist can cause a crash, the negligent actions of other drivers, dangerous roadways, and design flaws also contribute to thousands of accidents. A full investigation should always be conducted to properly determine the cause and liability.
