Too often, motorcycle accidents are the result of a bike being struck by another vehicle. One of the most common reasons given for such accidents is that the driver responsible for causing the crash simply did not see the motorcycle.
The Ohio Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain this was the cause of a recent collision that left two people seriously injured. Reports indicate the crash happened this past Saturday evening on U.S. Highway 35, outside of New Jasper Township.
According to an article from WDTN 2 News, the victims were riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle along the highway to go get coffee. On their way, the motorcycle was struck from behind by an Ohio State Highway Patrolman’s vehicle.
The impact of the collision caused the driver of the motorcycle to lose control and veer off the road, which threw both occupants from the machine.

Both victims were wearing helmets at the time of the crash.
The firm’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers says the crash highlights the need for motorists to be more vigilant of motorcycles on the highway. This means staying focused on the road and looking twice before moving in traffic.
