Draper, UT (August 25, 2022) – On Thursday, August 25th, a collision involving a motorcyclist and another vehicle took place on Interstate 15 in Draper.
Reports show that the crash occurred at about 5:55 p.m. in the southbound lanes of the interstate in the area of the 12300 exit ramp and obstructed the far righthand lane of travel.
Along with the Utah Highway Patrol, EMTs were requested to the scene. At least one person was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Their condition is unknown.
No additional details have been made available.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Motorcyclists are vulnerable to fatalities and injuries in a way that the operators of other vehicles are not. A distracted driver could suddenly veer into their lane, causing them to lose control of their motorcycle, resulting in an accident without any actual contact between the vehicles. If a vehicle abruptly stops in front of them, riders can be thrown from their bikes and very seriously injured.
Sadly, it is not uncommon for any accident to end in critical injury or death. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that a motorcyclist is eight times more likely to sustain an injury and 37 times more prone to being killed in a collision than the occupant of a vehicle when the two collide.
Accidents involving motorcycles are typically regarded as the most serious kinds of accidents because motorcycles are frequently operated at high speeds and do not provide riders or their passengers with any protection. In fact, research has shown that 98% of all motorcycle crashes result in injuries.
