Motorcycle Accident Claims the Life of Young Sailor

Posted on Aug 13, 2009

On the 500 block of Helmick St. in Norfolk, VA, 22 year old sailor Phillip A. Bailey lost his life in a motorcycle accident. The victim was found around 1:00 a.m. lying a few feet from his bike. He was transported to a hospital, but he died of his injuries there around 4:00 a.m.  Police never determined the actual time of the accident, but they were able to rule out alcohol as a factor. The investigators did conclude that speed was a factor to the death of this young man.

It is always tragic to hear about unfortunate incidents such as these.  As a friend to someone who recently received their motorcycle license, I hope that he as well as all other motorcyclists respect the speed limits, abstain from drinking and driving, and wear a helmet while riding. These three simple acts could save their lives, if they find themselves in a motorcycle accident. As we saw in the case above, a simple act of speeding on such an exposed vehicle can have disastrous consequences.
