Motorcycle crashes can be deadly, and when a wrongful death or critical injury takes place, you may be faced with difficult decisions and monetary consequences. With the lack of protection against dangerous drivers, accidents that are considered relatively minor could still have terrible consequences. For people injured in a motorcycle accident, this story from June 10 may be too familiar.
A car accident left one person dead and another one injured at the scene of the crash on Porchtown Road. Police have reported that the traffic around the scene at the intersection of Porchtown and Alivine Roads had to be detoured.
Police believe that a car was backing out of a driveway at around 3:00 p.m. when the accident took place. Two motorcyclists were passing at the same time, driving down Porchtown Road. The driver of the car failed to stop and struck the two motorcycles, according to the New Jersey State Police.
One motorcyclist was allegedly killed in the accident, although police have not released the identity of the person who was pronounced dead at the scene. At this time, all police would say was that the second motorcyclist and the car's driver were injured.
What is known is that the New Jersey State Police, Elmer Ambulance, Centerton Fire Co, Medivac 5, Life Support 3, Willow Grove Volunteer Fore Co., and the Franklin Township Ambulance reported to the scene of this tragic accident. The emergency services were able to transport the second motorcyclist and driver of the car to the hospital for the treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
