One killed in Reno motorcycle accident

A young man who was riding a motorcycle died as the result of a possible failure to yield at a Reno intersection. Authorities are, however, still investigating the precise cause of the crash and have even asked the public for information.

The accident happened in the evening hours on a recent weeknight on two city streets. The motorcyclist and the driver of a private passenger vehicle hit each other. The motorcyclist was initially taken to a local hospital but succumbed to his injuries a short time after the accident. His name may be released after authorities notify the next of kin.

Police pointed out that the driver of the car stayed at the scene of the accident and voluntarily spoke with the police.

While it is important to remember that this accident remains under investigation, it still serves as a good reminder that drivers of full-size passenger vehicles need to make sure that they are keeping a sharp eye out for motorcyclists and doing what they can to prevent motorcycle accidents.

Through no fault of their own, motorcyclists are simply harder to see, which means other drivers need to check twice for motorcyclists before turning, going through an intersection or even just changing lanes. If they do not do so, then they run the risk of either hitting a motorcyclist or forcing the motorcyclist off of his or her bike.

In either case, the chance of the motorcyclist suffering serious injuries, including paralysis or brain damage, are fairly high. Under such circumstances, the motorcyclist may have the legal option to pursue compensation.
