Comments (0)
A motorcyclist has died from injuries he suffered after colliding with a pickup truck on U.S. Highway 64 near Lexington, North Carolina (NC). The fatal March 22, 2012, accident occurred close to near E.L. Myers Road. It happened after the truck's driver pulled into the bike rider's path while making a left-hand turn.

The collision threw the motorcyclist from his bike, and paramedics were unable to revive him.

Riding a motorcycle can be exhilarating and many are drawn to the sense of freedom from the enclosed feeling of a car or truck. Unfortunately, as this accident shows, riding a motorcycle can also be dangerous. Even the most experienced rider may not be able to avoid a crash caused by a driver who may have been distracted or, for whatever reason, just didn’t see the motorcycle.

The case is still being investigated, but the deceased victim's family may find it to their advantage to contact a North Carolina accident attorney who is familiar with motorcycle wreck cases. While compensation received through a wrongful death claim could never replace their loved one, it may help them recover financially from their loss.
