Two people suffered severe injuries following a Perry Township traffic collision. The auto-motorcycle collision happened on Wednesday night, October 13th. The accident occurred as a car tried making a turn from Southbound U.S. 33.
According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, the crash happened at about 6:56 p.m. near the intersection of Riverside Drive and Henderson Road. The sheriff’s office said their preliminary inquiry disclosed that a red 2007 Chevrolet Silverado was turning from the southbound U.S. 33 onto the eastbound Henderson Road.
A black 2005 Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle struck the Silverado. The collision impact ejected a passenger on the motorcycle, while the motorcyclist and the motorcycle ended up under the front of the Silverado. First responders conveyed the motorcycle rider and the passenger to Riverside Methodist Hospital in critical condition.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Perry Township Police, Upper Arlington Police, and Upper Arlington Fire Department were the first responders. Anyone with relevant information on the Perry Township traffic collision should contact the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Crash Investigation Unit on 614-525-6113.
Auto-motorcycle accidents are pretty dangerous for motorcycle riders because they have little or no protection when their bodies hit the ground. As a result, collisions of this nature result in severe or catastrophic injuries and ultimately the motorcyclist’s death. In addition, crash victims who survive auto-motorcycle collisions could file a compensation claim if they were not at fault.
Determining the fault party requires gathering evidence from the crash scene and following up on police investigation. Unfortunately, this is something injured motorcycle riders cannot do. Thus, it is best to hire a lawyer as soon as possible.
