Maryland Motorcycle Accident Proves Fatal

By Alpert Schreyer on August 18, 2014

A 46-year-old man was killed in Prince George’s County when his motorcycle swerved out of control and struck a vehicle. According to a WUSA9 news report, the fatal motorcycle accident occurred on Annapolis Road and MLK Highway in Lanham. Officials are looking into what caused the motorcyclist to lose control before striking a curb and a vehicle. The motorcyclist succumbed to his injuries at a nearby hospital.

Riding a motorcycle can prove dangerous for even the most skilled and experienced drivers. According to the Maryland Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration, there were 95 motorcyclists killed in Maryland in the year 2007. That is a significant increase from the 84 fatalities in 2006, 85 in 2005, 69 in 2004 and 56 in 2003. Of the motorcyclists killed in the year 2007, 83 were helmeted and 11 were not wearing a helmet.

It is common for motorcycle accidents to result in serious and even fatal injuries. Riders in Maryland can get crushed by larger vehicles and violently thrown onto the roadway. Many victims of Maryland motorcycle accident suffer traumatic brain injuries, road rash, neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries, multiple bone fractures and a number of other serious injuries.
