Woman faces charges after death of motorcyclist

When you're driving, one of the things you need to be cautious about is recognizing motorcyclists on the roads. Because of the size of their vehicles, they often appear to be moving more slowly than they are. This tends to result in crashes.

As a driver, it's your responsibility to keep motorcyclists safe by monitoring your surroundings. As a motorcyclist, it's your job to do all you can to stand out to drivers. If you don't, you could end up in a crash like this one.

A woman from Colorado has been charged with a homicide following the death of a motorcyclist. The crash, which took place in Lancaster Township, is allegedly the result of the woman's reckless driving behaviors.

In this case, that woman has been charged with reckless driving, for driving on the wrong side of the road and for other violations. As you are probably aware, drivers need to remain on the right side of the road unless they are passing in a safe-passing zone. She allegedly attempted to pass in a no-passing zone.

The man who was killed in the accident, a 50-year-old man from Lancaster Township, died as a result of blunt force trauma. His death has been reported as accidental, and it's not believed that the woman had any intention to cause him harm. She is, however, accused of driving her vehicle on the left side of the motorcycle in a no-passing zone. She's accused of speeding in her vehicle as well, which could have contributed to the severity of the man's injuries.

An attorney can help victims of motorcycle accidents and their families seek compensation for a variety of damages, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and more.
