On the tails of our last post regarding a motorcyclist who crashed into a vehicle at 100-plus mph, the Dallas Morning News reported another motorcycle accident around 8 this morning. This time, the motorcycle driver was reported as weaving in and out of traffic and riding recklessly as he took the Highway 75 exit ramp onto the George Bush Turnpike. The man’s motorcycle hit a railing and flew off his motorcycle over the wall of the ramp – falling 14 feet onto the road below.
At the time of this post, the condition of the motorcyclist was unknown.
Motorcycles are dangerous modes of transportation. While motorcycle riders are not at fault in more than 80 percent of motorcycle crashes, this is the second incident we have discussed recently involving carelessness on behalf of the motorcyclist. Contact an accident attorney if you have been the victim of a motorcycle crash or other motor vehicle accident as a result of someone else’s reckless driving.
