Taylorsville, UT (October 7, 2020) – A motorcycle accident on Tuesday evening left one person critically injured. On October 6, a group of motorcyclists was traveling on 5400 South.
While traveling through the intersection of 5400 South and 1900 West, a Jeep turned from the center lane and struck one of the riders. The motorcycles then followed the Jeep driver into a parking lot and attempted to get the driver to exit their vehicle. Instead of doing so, the driver backed up the vehicle and struck a motorcycle.
The motorcyclist sustained serious injuries in the accident. The victim was rushed to an area hospital where they were admitted for emergency treatment. At this time, the incident remains under investigation with the Unified Police Department.
Our thoughts are with the motorcyclist who was injured in this accident. We hope for his full recovery.
Motorcycle accidents can have a detrimental impact on a person’s life. In the United States alone, more than 5,100 people lose their lives each year as a result of injuries sustained in these accidents. Tens of thousands of other victims are left seriously injured. The fact that these riders do not have steel frames protecting them like most other motorists leave them at an increased risk of suffering serious injuries. In many instances, victims are left with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and more.
Not only are victims forced to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering, but they are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment without the promise of fully recovering.
