An accident in Cleveland on Friday, July 10, involved a motorcycle and two other vehicles, according to wrcb news.
Motorcycle and Vehicle Collide
According to Cleveland police, a 42-year-old motorcyclist was eastbound on 25th Street at about 11 p.m. At the same time, a vehicle operated by an 18-year-old female was in the crossover. This motorist allegedly wanted to go straight across 25th Street and on to Old 25th Street. Instead, the vehicle and the motorcycle collided at the intersection. According to authorities, the impact separated the motorcycle into two pieces. The front section then struck a third vehicle.
Two Individuals Taken to Hospital
The motorcyclist and the motorist both required transport to an area hospital. However, the motorcyclist died at the hospital. The nature of the female driver’s injuries was not immediately known. EMS personnel examined the driver of the third vehicle at the scene. That motorist did not go to the hospital.
Although this particular motorcycle accident is the subject of an ongoing investigation, those injured due to negligent conduct do have recourse in the state’s civil courts. When it is reasonable to claim that another person’s negligence led to injury, it is often possible to seek compensation for unpaid medical bills, pain-and-suffering and lost wages.
