A study called The Hurt Report determined that one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents involving cars or trucks was vehicle drivers’ failure to recognize or yield  to oncoming motorcycles. The Indianapolis Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys explained that such a collision was responsible for claiming the life of a 38-year-old motorcyclist earlier this week.

According to an article published by the Indy Star, the crash happened at approximately 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1, at the intersection of 126th Street and Reynolds Drive in the town of Fishers, Indiana.

Reports indicate the victim was operating a 2003 Kawasaki motorcycle along the eastbound lanes of 126th Street. As he began to approach and pass through the crossing with Reynolds Drive though, a westbound 2001 Chrysler being driven by a 17-year-old driver attempted to turn left onto Reynolds in front of the motorcycle.

The motorcyclist did not have time to avoid the vehicle and crashed. The impact of the collision left the victim with serious injuries that later claimed his life. Police are still working to determine if the motorcyclist struck the vehicle or crashed in an attempt to avoid a collision.

Stewart & Stewart Attorneys and their Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers are aware of how difficult losing a loved one to an accident caused by another person’s negligence can be. That’s why the firm would like to send their sympathies to the family of the victim.
