A 31-year-old Noblesville, Indiana, man died Saturday night as the result of a motorcycle crash. According to the Indy Star, the accident happened around 7:15 in the evening in Carmel, Indiana at an intersection with a side road off of the Hazel Dell Parkway.

Authorities say they believe the man was driving his 2005 Yamaha bike north on the parkway. As he approached the intersection with Rippling Brook Way, a 2011 Toyota RAV4 driven by a 73-year-old man pulled out in front of him. The biker did not have time to react, and ran into the rear side of the SUV. The impact threw the motorcyclist from his bike.

The man was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but later died from injuries sustained in the accident.

The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) found in a study that wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle will improve your chances of survival in a crash by more than 50 percent. That number was said to grow exponentially as the speed of the motorcycles decreases.

The Indiana Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart would like to urge motorcycle riders to always wear a helmet when riding and slowing down. Following these simple tips could save your life, or that of another.
