Motorcycle accidents: 1 dead after Colorado Springs crash

Many Colorado residents own and enjoy a motorcycle. Some people rely on these vehicles as their main mode of transportation, while others ride them for fun and leisure. However, motorcycle accidents often do not end well, since motorcyclists are typically more vulnerable to injury than occupants of larger vehicles, such as cars and trucks. In fact, a woman on a motorcycle died from her injuries following a recent crash in Colorado Springs.

Reportedly, the incident happened late in the evening at an intersection when a car ran a red light and struck a motorcycle carrying two people. Both the motorcycle driver and the passenger were transported to a local hospital. Apparently, both victims were wearing helmets.

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department, the motorcycle passenger, a 45-year-old woman, succumbed to her injuries 11 days after the crash. The motorcycle driver's condition was not reported. Police have said they are continuing to investigate the incident. They do not suspect driver impairment was a contributing factor.

Sadly, motorcycle accidents happen too often. In many cases, a car or truck driver whose attention is not fully on the task at hand fails to see a motorcyclist, resulting in tragedy; this may have been what happened in this situation. When the investigation is completed, it seems likely the evidence will indicate the crash was caused by the car driver's negligence and/or recklessness. If so, the deceased victim's family, as well as the injured victim, has the right to pursue the matter within the civil justice system. A Colorado attorney experienced in personal injury law can examine the case details and inform them of their legal options.
