Motorcycle accident leads to fatality

As summer approaches, Hoosiers may anticipate seeing more motorcyclists out on the roads. Tragically, for one biker enjoying the summer weather in the region, a recent motorcycle collision cost him his life.

The motorcycle accident occurred on Broadway near 18th Street in Louisville. Around 4 p.m., a 36-year-old woman was driving a GMC SUV eastbound on Broadway. She turned left in front of the motorcyclist who was headed westbound, which caused the fatal motorcycle crash.

The male victim, age 46, suffered numerous blunt force injuries after the accident. He was pronounced dead in the emergency room at a nearby hospital.

Following the accident, the driver of the SUV, a Tennessee resident, was arrested and charged with operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked operator's license, as well as failure to maintain required insurance. According to police, she did not have identification or a driver's license in her possession, though she contended that she did possess a valid Tennessee driver's license. Subsequently, upon contact with police in her home county, police determined that her driver's license had been revoked. Furthermore, it was determined by police that she did not have valid insurance.

This tragic accident cost a biker his life and a family a loved one, following a driver's apparently negligent turn into oncoming traffic. Families in Indiana or Kentucky who have lost loved ones following motorcycle accidents, or an individual who has been injured in a motorcycle accident, may wish to consult with an attorney. There may be legal options available to hold a negligent party responsible for his or her actions.
