Motorcycle accidents: University of Kentucky student dies in crash

The cooler fall temperatures have made it more enjoyable for Kentucky riders to be out on the roads on their motorcycles. Unfortunately, along with increased riding, there is a greater chance for motorcycle accidents to occur. Tragically, a senior college student died in a serious accident as he was riding his bike one morning.

Reportedly, the student was in his last year at the University of Kentucky and was well-liked by everyone that knew him. Several people reported witnessing the tragic accident that morning. Early investigation indicates that he was turning left, traveling in the opposite direction of a sedan who was also turning left when the accident occurred.

The sedan was apparently turning left on a flashing yellow arrow into a nearby parking lot for a health clinic when the motorcyclist slammed into the side of the car. Witnesses state that the college student appeared to attempt to stop, but failed. Bystanders quickly rushed to aid the accident victims and emergency personal arrived quickly. Although help was readily available, the young man's injuries were severe, and he died before he could be transported to a medical facility.

It is upsetting when motorcycle accidents occur, especially when they are fatal for any persons involved. Unfortunately, there often is a stereotype for motorcyclists to be risky drivers regardless of whether or not they are found to be at fault in an accident. Anyone involved in a motorcycle accident in Kentucky could benefit from having an attorney advocate on their behalf during the insurance claims process, personal injury lawsuits or wrongful death claims.
