Massachusetts motorcycle accident fatally injures 1

As drivers, part of the responsibility of getting behind the wheel is ensuring that care is taken on the road. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to avoid an accident as we cannot control the actions of others. In recent news, a Massachusetts motorcycle accident led to the death of a motorcyclist.

The tragedy happened early on the morning of April 14. The 24-year-old motorcyclist was traveling along Route 116 when a driver, who was reportedly going the wrong way, struck him. The driver of the vehicle was also injured, as was the driver of a third vehicle.

Police are investigating the accident and trying to determine what happened. No charges have yet been filed in connection with the motor vehicle accident. However, according to reports, the motorist responsible for striking the motorcycle may have been travelling southbound in the northbound lanes of Route 116. From early reports, it would appear that she could the liable party.

Both motorists were said to be in good condition, but tragically, the Massachusetts motorcyclist was fatally injured. As police piece together what happened, his family may wish to file a wrongful death claim to seek compensation for their loss. Knowing the reasons for the motorcycle accident may help them with recovering such compensation, which can go toward covering funeral expenses and the lost wages of the young man. In the meantime, we can only express our sincere hope that they find the strength and courage to carry on.
