Three people required medical attention following a recent Rochester Motorcycle Accident. Reports indicate that the incident occurred on July 6 just before 4 p.m. at the intersection of Dry Hill Road and Washington Street.
A story published by Foster’s Daily Democrat explained that a 52-year-old man from Belmont, New York, was driving on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle carrying his wife along Washington Street. The pair was riding next to another Harley-Davidson, carrying a 50-year-old man from Concord.
The two motorcycles attempted to cross Dry Hill Road, but a 2009 Chrysler Town & Country minivan, driven by a 30-year-old female, failed to yield and collided with one of the bikes.
The impact forced the couple to be ejected from the machine before the motorcycle struck the second bike. As a result of the crash, the two injured bikers were rushed to a local hospital for treatment. The third motorcyclist transported himself to the hospital later for further examination.
The incident puts just how dangerous riding motorcycles can be into perspective, as well as the importance of being aware of how to prevent accidents involving motorcycles.
The Rochester Personal Injury Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices say motorcyclists should wear helmets every time they ride, regardless of the law. The firm also reminds all motorists to look twice in both directions before entering traffic.
