Car accident claims life of motorcycle rider in Tennessee

With warmer weather setting in, many individuals have decided to park their cars or trucks and set out on the open road on a motorcycle. While riding a bike may provide a certain sense of excitement and freedom, there is also some level of risk involved, as motorcycle-related collisions can have dire consequences. A recent car accident involving a motorcycle in Tennessee has reportedly claimed the life of a 69-year-old man.

Law enforcement agents say the accident took place on a recent Wednesday at around 4:30 p.m. According to reports, the crash occurred as the man was riding his bike eastbound when the driver of an oncoming vehicle suddenly turned directly into his path. The man was reportedly unable to react in time to avoid collision, and his bike struck the side of the vehicle soon thereafter.

While the driver who caused the collision was not harmed, the rider of the bike was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene. Police have advised that an investigation into the crash is underway and state that failure to yield appears to have been the primary cause. They have also advised that charges will be filed against the driver once the investigation is completed.

Far too many families have lost loved ones in a motorcycle-related car accident. Following such a loss, the surviving loved ones of the victim could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on their available legal avenues. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in Tennessee in pursuing the full amount of restitution deserved through a wrongful death claim against the party deemed at fault.
