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.
You were hit by a car, and the driver, fortunately, stayed at the scene. You've struggled to make peace with the fact that the driver didn't intentionally hit you because you've been left with severe injuries.
One of the injuries you may need to deal with following a motorcycle accident is road rash. Otherwise known as a friction burn and skin lacerations, road rash rips the skin off the body as it grinds against rough ground surfaces.
A motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a crash that took place on Interstate 25. According to news out of El Paso County, the Colorado State Patrol came to the scene near Widefield at around 10:15 p.m. The authorities were informed that at least three crashes had already taken place in the area in the southbound lanes near where the accident occurred.
There are many things you need to do after a motorcycle crash, but at that time, you may feel too traumatized to do much at all. Keep in mind that if you're hurt, you should call for help and wait for medical assistance.
You love that you've finally been able to get a motorcycle. You waited for years to get the right one, and you're so excited that you can learn to ride.
In 2016, 125 motorcyclists died in Colorado, and that has drawn concern. That number is up 15 percent from 2015. Many of these accidents are a result of motorists not paying attention or being on the lookout for motorcyclists.
Drunk driving is a major concern across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) remarks that one person dies approximately every 48 minutes in the United States because of drunk driving.
When riding a motorcycle, you probably already know that certain times of the year are more hazardous than others. Winter riding, in particular, puts you at risk of being involved in a collision. If your wheels slide on ice or snow, you could crash. If another driver slides, he or she could hit you. Hidden potholes and other issues can also arise, leading to serious accidents.
It is a tragedy whenever an accident occurs. It's often even more devastating when the crash could have been prevented, like this one. In this case, a common cause of motorcycle crashes took the life of a man in Colorado.
