Investigators in Colorado Springs say they believe street racing may have played a role in an accident that seriously injured at least one person. Colorado authorities have not filed charges as of this report, but as with many motorcycle accidents, their investigation may be treated as a criminal one, depending on the information they gather. The accident is said to have taken place the morning of Oct. 14.
Two people were injured in an accident involving a car and a motorcycle, according to an officer on the scene. Motorcycle accidents can be particularly dangerous to the rider, since a bike provides nowhere near the protection of a car. In this case, Colorado authorities are still trying to determine the cause of the accident.
There have been many campaigns over the years, especially on social media, that warn automobile drivers to remain aware of motorcycles riders sharing the roads as one means of helping prevent motorcycle accidents. No matter the pleas for safety, motorcycle accidents causing serious injury or death are still prevalent across the country. A recent nighttime accident has left one Colorado man fighting for his life.
The rules of the road apply to everyone on the road, no matter the age and no matter the manner of transportation. Those who choose to violate those rules may cause serious damage in the form of car or motorcycle accidents. Victims who have been injured in car or motorcycle accidents often decide to file a personal injury lawsuit, while surviving families of deceased victims may opt to pursue a wrongful death claim. A 46-year-old Colorado man died recently in a crash attributed to the negligence of another person.
Most motorcycle riders follow the rules of the road and trust whenever they are riding that other drivers do as well. No matter how careful a biker may be, however, motorcycle accidents do happen. Colorado Springs police are continuing their investigation into one of the motorcycle accidents that occurred on a recent afternoon.
Most motorcycle riders will tell those they know that there is no feeling on earth that makes them feel as free as when they are riding on their bikes. Along with the exhilaration, however, often come feelings of fear when others on the road are not aware that the bikers are alongside them, creating the potential for motorcycle accidents with their lack of attention. The number of motorcycle accidents on Colorado roads rose by one this past weekend when a man driving an SUV hit a bike.
Safety is a looming concern for all motorcycle riders. Many motorcycle accidents are caused by other motorists who do not pay close enough attention to the two-wheeled vehicles sharing the road with them. As in other types of accidents, injuries from motorcycle accidents can range from scrapes and bruises to serious injury or death. While out on their bike, two Colorado residents were killed in a recent accident.
Riding a motorcycle can give a person a feeling of freedom when he or she is out on the open road, but it can also carry a certain amount of danger. Motorcycle accidents are common on the roads of Colorado and can leave riders with varying degrees of injuries. One of those motorcycle accidents recently resulted in death to one rider and serious injury to another.
Many motorcycle riders own a bike because they love the feeling of freedom when they are out on the open road. Sometimes that feeling of freedom is overshadowed by serious injury or even death from motorcycle accidents. Statistics from the Colorado Department of Transportation show that the number of deaths from motorcycle accidents has risen dramatically in just the past year. Sadly, that number increased after a recent accident took the life of a 69-year-old man.
Motorcycle riders often face dangers from multiple sources. Inclement weather or distracted car or truck drivers can lead to serious motorcycle accidents. Riders who have been injured know it can be a scary experience, as injuries can range from minor scrapes and bruises to brain or spinal injury or worse. A Colorado man was injured on his bike in a recent nighttime accident.
