Motorcyclist Injures Ice Cream Truck Driver in Dearborn Accident

0 Comment

A Dearborn motorcycle accident that took place on Saturday, August 31st involved an ice cream truck driver. According to police reports, a motorcyclist lost control of their bike striking an ice cream truck driver in the leg who was outside his truck handing out treats. Witnesses claim that the ice cream truck driver  helped protect the children he was serving treats from harm. As a result of this crash, the ice cream truck driver and motorcyclist remain in serious condition. This accident remains under investigation.

I am so sorry to hear about this terrible accident. I hope the injured victims have a fast recovery without any permanent damages.

In many cases, a review of what a motorcyclist was doing before a crash will help determine how the accident could have been prevented.  According to the Office of Highway Safety Planning the majority of Michigan motorcycle accidents (2,414) that occurred in the year 2012 involved a motorcyclist who was simply going straight ahead.  In straight-ahead accidents, 104 motorcyclists were killed and 2,030 injured.  When these types of accidents occur, it must be determined if the motorcyclist or another motorist was behaving negligently before the collision.

Victims injured  in a Michigan motorcycle accidents do have legal rights.
