Motorcycle Accident Lawyer: Left Turning Vehicle Accident Results in Serious Injuries for Motorcyclist in Richmond Hill
There are reports of another serious accident involving a car and a motorcycle at an intersection. On the early evening of Wednesday June 20 2018, there was an accident involving a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle and a black Mercedes at the intersection of Leslie and Greenhill Avenue, in Richmond Hill. According to early reports, the Mercedes was travelling northbound on Leslie Street and was making a left turn onto westbound Greenhill Avenue when it collided with the motorcycle that was travelling southbound on Leslie Street.
The driver of the motorcycle, a 21-year-old man from Richmond Hill, suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to hospital.
First and foremost, the motorcycle accident lawyers at Iacobelli Law Firm sincerely hope that the young man involved in this motorcycle accident makes a speedy and complete recovery from his injuries.
Although the accident is under investigation with York Regional Police, this type of accident is far too common. We see many motorcycle accidents that occur with left turning cars and trucks. Unfortunately, drivers sometimes fail to pay attention and turn into the path of approaching motorcycles. While it is always important to use caution when making a left turn, it is particularly important during the spring and summer months when many motorcycles are taking to the road. Because motorcycles are smaller than cars and trucks, some drivers fail to observe them or mistakenly judge them to be father away than they actually are. If you cannot clearly see all lanes of approaching traffic, do not commence your turn. Be patient and use extra caution.
