When someone is injured in an accident, the consequences are far-reaching and affect not just the person injured but also their immediate family and friends.
This was the case for Dean Spruill, a motorcycle rider who was so seriously injured in Chesapeake, Virginia (VA), that his leg had to be amputated on the scene by emergency crews. His daughter received the call and rushed to the hospital to find that her father had lost his leg and suffered hip, back and possibly brain injuries from the accident. We, as well as the local community, wish him the swiftest of recoveries, as he is a local softball coach for Kempsville High School.
So what caused this terrible motorcycle accident? The driver of a SUV simply did not see Spruill on his motorcycle. This accident was completely preventable, and this father of two will now have to suffer the devastating consequences for the rest of his life. If only the driver of the SUV would have paid more attention to the road.
The accident, which happened near Mt. Pleasant Road and the 168 bypass in Chesapeake, Virginia (VA), is a stark reminder of how dangerous roads can be for bike riders. The driver of that SUV was determined by police to be at fault, and they plan to file charges.
