Motorcyclist killed in accident at a dangerous intersection

On Behalf of | Apr 18, 2023 | Motorcycle Accidents

Riding motorcycles is a popular form of recreation in the state of Colorado. As warmer weather returns, there will be more and more motorcycles present on roadways across the state. However, motorcyclists face different kinds of risks than motorists in passenger vehicles. Motorcycle accidents are more likely to be fatal since riders are exposed, especially when other vehicles are involved. 

Father and avid motorcycle rider lost in crash 

A beloved father and avid motorcyclist lost his life after being hit at a notoriously dangerous intersection in Colorado Springs. The accident happened during the afternoon at the intersection of North Nevada Avenue and East Platte Avenue. According to reports, the man was riding through the intersection when another vehicle turned in front of him, causing a collision. Tragically, the motorcyclist was killed instantly in the crash, reports said.  

Reportedly, accidents at this particular intersection are not unusual. Records indicated that there were 21 accidents last year at this location. Apparently, there is a statue at the intersection that makes it harder for motorists to see traffic clearly and could be contributing to accidents. The man’s surviving family members are reportedly fighting to make the intersection safer by having the statue removed. 

How to get help in the aftermath 

Motorcycles have smaller profiles and are often harder for other drivers to see. This is a primary factor in many accidents. When riders in Colorado are injured or killed due to the negligence of another party, those affected have the right to pursue rightful damages. By speaking with a lawyer and filing a claim, victims and families could obtain much-needed financial relief.
