Motorcycle Accident Causes Fatality

Taylor Jackson4 years ago

According to connectamarillo.com, a motorcycle crash this month caused the death of the 38-year-old male driver. 

Around 7 p.m., the police were called to the 3700 block of Southwest 6th for a major traffic accident.  The police say that speed was a contributing factor in the crash, which occurred after the driver lost control of his motorcycle, slid into oncoming traffic, and struck a Cadillac Escalade truck’s driver side door. He was transported to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries, according to the police.

Motorcycle Safety

  • According to the NHTSA, the cause of most motorcycle accidents can be attributed to a lack of basic riding skills.
  • Motorcycle accidents can also happen because the driver fails to understand the limitations of their motorcycles, fails to use precautions when driving or fails to brake and corner properly.
  • Another big factor in staying safe on motorcycles is staying in the speed limit. Motorcycles can’t offer the same protection as cars when they get in a wreck, so the faster a motorcycle goes the worse the damage will be.
  • The NHTSA also recommends always wearing helmets, gloves, boots, eye gear, jackets and trousers to protect the body in case of accidents.
