Speed Kills One Motorcyclist, Severely Injures Another | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Adding to what has become a record year for fatal motorcycle accidents in Hampton Roads, two bike riders wrecked in Chesapeake on Tuesday evening. One motorcyclist died and the other went to Sentara Norfolk Hospital with head injuries. My colleague Emily Mapp Brannon notes in her latest post to the Virginia Beach Injuryboard that both motorcyclists were speeding, and the hospitalized rider was not wearing a helmet. Emily concludes that motorcycle riders need to protect themselves by obeying traffic laws and always riding sober.
