Motorcycle Accident With Injuries on Route 25 in East Marion in New York (NY)
SUFFOLK COUNTY, NY- Suffolktimestimesreview.com writes that a motorcycle crash took place this week on Route 25. The incident involved a 2019 Subaru that was attempting to turn left at the intersection with Starts Road.
The motorcyclist was approaching and attempted to drive past the car, waiting to turn. Another vehicle reportedly then drifted in front of the motorcycle, and the motorcycle attempted to avoid a crash. The motorcycle then struck the Subaru. The car that drifted into the motorcycle then fled the crash scene.
The impact caused the motorcyclist to be thrown from his motorcycle. Reports indicate that the victim suffered injuries to his leg in the crash. Responders transported the man to the Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital.
Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous, and is statistically much more hazardous than riding in a car. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety states that the risk of death for motorcyclists is 27 times as high as that which people inside of cars face.
Part of the dangers involved in riding a motorcycle comes from the fact that they are more difficult to operate than are cars. Of course, two-wheeled vehicles also lack many of the safety features that are standard on cars and other automobiles.
While learning to ride a motorcycle properly, and using safety gear, including a helmet, can lower the risks for a motorcyclist, these individuals still must contend with risks posed by others on the road. Drivers often fail to notice motorcyclists, and the consequences of being overlooked can be devastating. Wearing bright colors can help reduce the risk of being overlooked.
