The family of a 62-year-old man from Lewiston, New York, who was killed in a motorcycle accident last month, is still searching for answers to questions swirling around the events that led to the crash.
The Buffalo News reported that on Aug.12 around 1:10 p.m., the victim was riding a Harley-Davidson east along the thruway near Hamburg when he veered off exit 57 at a high rate of speed. The man then lost control of the motorcycle and veered off the road before striking an embankment and crashing. He was rushed to a local hospital, but died the next day as a result of brain injuries.
The man’s family has several unanswered questions surrounding the Buffalo motorcycle accident, due, in part, to the fact that a chase could have led to the crash.
Three eyewitness reports they saw a Jeep appearing to chase the motorcycle down the highway. The family believes the biker may have slowed for a nearby construction zone, which could have ignited a road rage incident forcing the motorcyclist to increase his speed on the exit ramp to escape the other driver.
The Buffalo Car Accident Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices understand the frustrations of losing a loved one due to an accident, and they send their condolences to the family of the accident victim.
