Road rage can easily lead to car and motorcycle accidents

Most Colorado drivers have witnessed an incident of road rage at some point during their driving history. Certainly, driving provides a high-pressure situation in itself; add in other drivers' unpredictable, erratic and often unlawful driving behaviors, and most people can probably see how such inappropriate reactions can happen. However, road rage itself is unacceptable and often leads to car or motorcycle accidents, sometimes with tragic consequences.

Road rage is suspected in a recent incident that left a motorcyclist with serious injuries when a pickup truck swerved into him on Interstate 25, apparently on purpose. Reportedly, the motorcyclist, a 54-year-old man from a different state, was traveling in the left lane of the roadway along with a few other motorcycle riders. According to one rider's dashcam video, the pickup truck driver traveled across several lanes of the interstate, ultimately swerving into the motorcycle, which then crashed into a concrete barrier and rolled over.

The motorcycle rider suffered serious bodily injuries and head trauma from the incident. He was transported to a hospital. The 38-year-old pickup driver, a Denver resident, remained at the scene, according to officials with the Colorado State Patrol. They have not yet said whether the driver will face charges, but they are continuing to investigate the incident.

Likely, most Colorado drivers have, at one point or another while on the road, felt a great deal of frustration toward another driver, but most people know it is best, and safer for everyone involved, to avoid expressing that emotion by driving recklessly. Car and motorcycle accidents caused by such behavior are completely preventable. When this investigation concludes, the evidence will probably indicate the pickup driver carries responsibility for the victim's injuries. The motorcyclist might then consider discussing his options with an experienced personal injury lawyer. A successfully litigated civil lawsuit could help cover documented monetary losses such as medical costs and lost income.
