Motorcycle Accidents Are Among the Deadliest Forms of Accidents in the Nation

Motorcycle accidents are common and often result in serious injuries. Motorcycle drivers need be extremely cautious when operating their bikes has the potential of serious or fatal personal injuries are much more likely if an automobile accident does occur. Although most motorcycle accidents are commonly the result of negligent driving, human error is also a likely contributing factor.

On the morning on April 5, 2010, the driver of a motorcycle attempted to make a left-hand turn near the intersection of Route 75 and New Market Road in New Market, Maryland. At the same time the driver of a Mercedes was driving straight through the intersection. The operator of the motorcycle failed to yield to the right of way and struck the Mercedes. As a result of the collision the motorcycle driver suffered severe head injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Mercedes suffered only minor cuts.

It is imperative that all the rules of the road are followed in order to prevent tragic accidents such as this. Traffic control devices are in place to help maintain the flow of traffic in an orderly fashion. Stop signs and traffic signals should always be given proper attention.
