Wednesday afternoon, a Springfield man died in a motorcycle accident. He was riding north on Missouri Rte. 97 near Scotts City when a careless attempt to turn ended his life. The motorcyclist, aged 39, was in the passing lane overtaking two vehicles when one of the drivers in the right lane tried to turn left. The careless driver had obviously failed to check his blind spot, and the motorcycle collided with the broad side of a pickup truck as it turned into the lane. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene by Missouri Highway Patrol.
Not surprisingly, a motorcycle accident will usually cause much more serious injuries than an auto accident. Almost a third of all motorcycle accident victims who survive the initial crash have injuries that affect their mobility in the long term. Spinal injuries and broken bones are very common after a motorcycle accident. Such injuries can be life-changing. The worst news of all? Unfortunately, about 11 people die every day because of the injuries caused by a motorcycle accident.
