Motorcyclist killed in auto accident

| Jul 2, 2014 | Uncategorized |

Most motorists and other residents are aware that being on a motorcycle is a dangerous venture. This is especially true when sharing the roadway with others who may be negligent. Recently, a 48-year-old Colorado man was killed in an auto accident while riding on his motorcycle. It is not yet clear if authorities will issue a citation in this matter.According to reports, an accident happened on a recent Tuesday afternoon involving a motorcycle and a Jeep SUV. The crash reportedly ensued at an intersection when the motorcyclist was traveling in the eastbound direction. The driver of the SUV made a left-hand turn and crashed into the motorcycle. Upon a preliminary investigation, authorities determined that the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.Tragically, the driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead. Traffic had to be held up in that area while the crash site was investigated. Authorities are still investigating the accident. No other details about the accident have been reported.As the authorities continue to investigate the fatal auto accident, the family of the deceased may be left in emotional turmoil after losing a loved one. If the investigation reveals negligence on the part of the driver of the SUV, then the family may pursue a wrongful death claim in an effort to receive justice. Surviving Colorado families may be able to recover the financial damages that inevitably result from these types of tragic events. If it is established to the court that negligence was a causal factor to the deadly crash, it will award an amount of compensation that is deemed appropriate.Source: fox21.com, ” Motorcycle crash kills Colorado Springs man”, Travis Ruiz, June 25, 2014
