South Jordan, UT (July 07, 2021) – A motorcycle rider is in serious condition after he was sideswiped by a car in South Jordan on Wednesday, July 7th.
The crash occurred at about 2:30 a.m. near the intersection of Redwood Road and 9800 South when a woman was making a right-hand turn onto Redwood Road and her vehicle sideswiped the northbound motorcycle, knocking bike and rider to the ground.
The motorcyclist was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries to his face and head.
The woman was unharmed during the incident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Major injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury or even wrongful death, can result from a serious motorcycle crash, specifically when another vehicle is involved. This is because motorcycles do not offer any of the safety features that the occupants of passenger vehicles enjoy, such as seat belts, a roll cage, and airbags, leaving riders exposed to serious internal injuries, as well as injuries to their brain and spinal cord.
