American Fork, UT (May 25, 2021) – Authorities have identified a motorcyclist who was killed in a motorcycle accident in American Fork Canyon last Sunday morning.
The motorcyclist was identified as Nick L. Walker, according to information released by the Utah Highway Patrol on Monday.
The accident occurred on State Route 92 near American Fork around 3:10 a.m. Lone Peak Fire District firefighters and medics responded to the scene but pronounced Walker deceased before he could be transported to a hospital.
The cause of the crash is currently unknown, though the investigation is ongoing.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Nick L. Walker at this time.
Even the most careful of motorcycle riders have greatly increased odds of sustaining injuries during a vehicle collision when compared to the occupant of a car or truck. According to newly established data calculated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, people who ride motorcycles incur five times the risk of enduring injuries than others involved in the crash.
Due to the fact that riders have no protection between their body, the pavement, or other vehicles, the injuries they receive are typically serious or fatal.
When victims pass away from injuries sustained in accidents caused by reckless, negligent, or careless drivers, their families may be entitled to compensation. Filing a legal claim with a responsive and effective wrongful death attorney in the Salt Lake City area can help to ensure your legal rights are protected after enduring the loss of a loved one.
