I normally don’t post stuff like this but I think this is something that never can be talked about enough. I know there are some many people who are guilty of texting and driving, talking on cell phone and driving, and any other distracting things. We all have done it or been distracted by something. With that said it is still needed to get the awareness out that motorcycles are everywhere and that to take a split second and look twice it just might save your life as well as someone else’s.
This is by no means to disrespect anyone, just pass this along to anyone that you know to try to spread awareness that motorcycles are everywhere.
The information that I have on this accident is the Honda motorcycle rider was travelling at approximately 85mph.
The VW driver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the motorcycle. The rider’s reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident.
The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them.
The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 20 feet from where the collision took place.
All three involved (two in the car and the bike rider) were killed instantly.
This graphic demonstration was placed at the Motorcycle Fair by the Police and Road Safety Department..
So please just pass this on to everyone. You may just save a life.
