A man and woman from Philadelphia were both seriously injured in a recent Motorcycle Accident. Records show the crash happened just after 8:45 p.m. on the night of Wednesday, June 5, at the corner of North Main Street and East Lois Drive in Monroe Township, New Jersey.
An article from the South Jersey Times explained the 41-year-old driver of a 1984 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, carrying a 41-year-old female passenger, was traveling south along Main Street. As the bike began to approach the intersection with Lois, a northbound 2006 GMC Sierra pickup truck attempted to make a left turn onto the side street in front of the bike. The motorcyclist did not have time to react to the turning truck and collided with the truck’s passenger door.
The impact of the collision caused both motorcyclists to be ejected from the vehicle, leaving them critically injured. They were airlifted to a local hospital where they continue to receive care.
While the driver of the truck was not hurt in the crash, two small children in the vehicle sustained minor injuries. They were treated at the scene by paramedics and released to their father.
An investigation into the cause of the crash continues.
The Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyers with Lundy Law stress that numerous motorcycle accidents occur because other motorists fail to recognize oncoming motorcycles. The firm asks motorists to look twice before entering traffic at intersections and to always be aware of other vehicles on the road.
