A motorcycle rider suffered serious injuries recently when a car making a u-turn crossed into his lane causing the 45-year-old rider to slam into the hood of a 2000 Mazda. The Orlando Sentinel claims that the man injured in the Florida motorcycle accident was driving his motorcycle south on Southwest 142nd Avenue when the Mazda making a u-turn struck him at the intersection of Thoroughbred Court.
The impact caused the motorcyclist to be thrown from his motorcycle onto the hood of the car. His head slammed into the car’s windshield and the momentum caused him to roll off the other side of the car. Emergency response personnel transported him to Broward General Medical Center. He was expected to survive his injuries.
According to law enforcement officials investigating the accident, the 45-year-old female driver of the 2000 Mazda was not injured in the accident and told police that she didn’t see the oncoming motorcycle. She was cited for failure to use due care.
A ticket for failure to use due care issued to the driver of a vehicle who causes a motorcycle accident provides little comfort to anyone injured by the driver. The man injured in this Florida motorcycle accident probably faces steep medical bills, long and painful physical rehabilitation and months of lost wages. The motorcycle accident is likely to cause financial hardship for the victim and his family that could last for many years.
