Tragedy strike group of Michigan motorcyclists

A group, comprised of a dozen motorcyclists, from Michigan was on its way back home when a horrific accident occurred last night. The accident took the life of one of the motorcyclists and injured nine others, only two of the 12 riders, all males on Harley-Davidson motorcycles, escaped the impact. Four of the injured were transported to area hospitals by medical rescue helicopters, two regular ambulances transported the less seriously injured to the hospital for treatment.

According to local law enforcement officials the accident occurred when a car, traveling in the opposite direction from the group of motorcyclists crossed the centerline. The car plowed into ten of the twelve motorcycles. There is not yet any indication as to why the car crossed the centerline or whether drugs or alcohol impairment may have been a factor in the crash. The highway was shut down for several hours and an accident reconstruction team is continuing to investigate this tragic accident.

As June arrives and summer begins to get into gear, many Michigan motorcycle riders are planning trips or are already out enjoying the open road. While the victims in this accident could have just as easily been struck while riding in a car when the other car crashed the centerline, the increased exposure to risk when rising a motorcycle certainly increased the scope and severity of the injuries in this crash.

Drivers owe a duty of reasonable care to every other person on the road regardless of the type of vehicle they are operating. But this but this duty is of added significance when the other person is a bicyclist, motorcycle rider or even a pedestrian without the added protection offered by passenger cabin of a vehicle.
