A 46-year-old man from Mount Airy was left seriously injured as the result of a Maryland Motorcycle Accident that occurred earlier this week. Reports indicate the crash happened at around 2:30 p.m. this past Sunday on Fredrick Road in Howard County.
According to an article released by the Carroll County Times, the victim was riding a 2007 Harley-Davidson motorcycle along the road when the 73-year-old driver of a 2002 Toyota Camry exited a parking lot and pulled out in front of the bike. The motorcyclist did not have time to stop his machine and the two vehicles collided.
The impact of the crash left the motorcyclist in critical condition. He was rushed to a local trauma center where he remains hospitalized.
Several other motorcycle accidents across the state recently have prompted officials to attempt to raise awareness in the area about the importance of motorcyclists and motorists alike doing their part to share the road responsibly. This goal can be achieved by always looking twice in both directions before entering traffic. Motorcyclists should also protect themselves by always wearing a DOT-approved helmet every time they go for a ride.
The Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers with ChasenBoscolo Injury Lawyers recognize the dangers posed by a motorcycle crash. The firm is hopeful these tips will be successful in helping to prevent these types of collisions from occurring in the future.
