Person on scooter killed in collision outside Columbus

One of the most enjoyable and efficient ways to ply the roads of Ohio and the rest of the United States is by motorcycle. Thousands of Buckeyes and many more from other states enjoy the flat, straight roads of much of the state, seeing the region from behind handlebars while saving on gas.

Motorcycles and other vehicles with minimal protection for their drivers and passengers also pose more than their share of dangers. Even slow-speed collisions with objects or other cars can severely injure or kill people on motorcycles because there is nothing to stop the force from hitting a living body.

A recent accident just outside Ohio’s state capital demonstrates some of the greatest risks to motorcyclists and their passengers. A person on a scooter heading southbound on Harrisburg Pike collided with a pickup truck moving northbound as he attempted to turn left while the truck approached.

The person on the scooter was thrown from the vehicle and struck by another car or truck heading northbound. The driver of the pickup truck was not injured, and the case remains under investigation by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Left turns on a vehicle that is harder for other drivers to see, as well as maneuvers during the dawn and dusk hours, can pose significant danger to motorcyclists. Those injured on the road or the survivors of those killed on motorcycles may have a case against a driver if he or her caused the accident.

An attorney with experience in personal injury may be a helpful representative for those attempting to recover damages or compensation in a civil suit or settlement after a motorcycle accident.
