A motorcyclist from northern Virginia lost his life recently when he crashed on the southbound ramp leading from Interstate 395 to Interstate 95, according to an article in The Baltimore Sun. The motorcyclist was a 23-year-old man from Fort Belvoir, a military installation in northern Virginia.
The man, who was traveling along with heavy traffic coming out of the Baltimore Orioles’ home-opening game, lost control of his motorcycle, and crashed. Although he was wearing a helmet at the time of the Maryland motorcycle accident, rescue workers were unable to revive him.
Maryland Transportation Authority police investigated the accident, which may have involved another vehicle. A school bus traveling in the area at approximately the same time was also involved in an accident in the heavy traffic. Fortunately there were no passengers on the bus and no one was seriously injured at the time of the incident. Interstate 395 was closed for several hours as rescue crews worked to save the motorcyclist and to clear vehicles from the roadway following the crashes.
Motorcycle safety gear like helmets, leather outerwear, and padding can help reduce injuries in some accidents. Unfortunately, even the best protective gear cannot keep all motorcyclists from being injured or even killed in a serious accident.
