Motorcycle accidents: Crash with truck causes serious injuries

Now that the weather is getting warmer, many are likely taking to the road on their motorcycles to enjoy the spring weather. However, when motorcycle accidents happen, they can cause serious injuries to the bikers and their passengers as well as a significant amount of damage to the bike itself. This appears to be exactly what happened in Colorado Springs when a commercial truck and motorcycle collided.

The accident occurred on Colorado 15 on the morning of Saturday, April 21, near the towns of Capulin and La Jara. According to the Colorado State Patrol, a feed truck had entered the highway from a driveway and was attempting to make a turn onto another driveway. That is when the motorcycle collided with the truck.

The motorcycle was described as being a black Yamaha, and the operator was identified as a 49-year-old man. He was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. No word on whether the truck driver, a 79-year-old man, was injured as well.

The crash is still under investigation, and hopefully authorities will determine who was at fault for this latest of Colorado's motorcycle accidents. If they determine the truck driver's negligence played a role in the wreck, the injured party reserves the right to pursue a legal claim against the driver, his employer and anyone else with ownership interest in the truck in an attempt to recover compensation for his medical bills, lost wages and other associated damages. Only after successfully proving negligence on the part of the truck driver will damages be adjudicated, and an experienced personal injury attorney can assist with filing the claim and advocating on behalf of the accident victim throughout all legal proceedings.
