Auburn, Washington (March 16, 2019) – A man lost part of his left leg below the knee when a car making a left-hand turn collided into him at Auburn Way. The motorcycle driver was heading southbound when the car driver took a legal left turn. The driver of the car stayed on the scene after the accident, and police have ruled out the influence of drugs and alcohol in the case.

About Vehicle Accidents

Much like any other vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents can easily come out of lapse of attention and careless maneuvers.  It is important to always observe proper driving and consideration for other vehicles, something which all motorcycle drivers should keep in mind as 3/4 of motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle. This is most likely due to a motorcycle’s overall visibility being less than most other vehicles, which means drivers of other vehicles tend not to see motorcycles in time. Similar to this case, many motorcycle accidents involve a car crash while the car is making a left-hand turn. Most car drivers do not see motorcycles on their left-hand side coming up, and thus do not expect such vehicles coming up. Because of a motorcycle’s open nature, the risks of injuries are greater to a person on a motorcycle than a person in a car. Head injuries are common in motorcycle accidents of all kinds, as are limb injuries.

While motorcycles are much-depended means of transportation, drivers should consider factors such as speed, number of other vehicles on the road, the road conditions and weather to ensure their safety while out and about. Any mistake can lead to accidents, injuries and damage not only to your person, but on other people as well. We extend our sympathies and compassion to all victims in similar cases.
