Comments (0)

A motorcycle rider died on July 7, 2012, from injuries he suffered he sustained when he collided with an Isuzu Rodeo on Sontag Road/Route 619 in Franklin County, Virginia (VA). The fatal collision happened at around 9 am near the intersection of Tavern Road/Route 707, and the motorcyclist succumbed to his injuries after being transported to Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital.


Police did not immediately charge the SUV driver with any traffic violations. They did tell reporters that the motorcycle rider was wearing a helmet and traveling straight on the rural highway.

The Virginia Wrongful Death Lawyers' Perspective

Sadly, deadly motorcycle accidents have been on the rise during 2012. Too many of the fatal crashes were caused by drivers of cars, trucks or SUVs who failed to yield right of way to the bikers. Often, the person behind the wheel of a larger vehicle simply failed to look for approaching motorcycles before turning or changing lanes. As Virginia personal injury and wrongful death attorneys who have helped many motorcycle accident victims, we know that tragedy often results when drivers fail to share the road safely with riders.
