It's no secret that motorcycles are some of the most dangerous vehicles on the road. According to a recent article on the New Orleans Advocate website, a tragic motorcycle accident occurred that left the motorcyclist dead.
The article states that the motorcyclist was a fifty-four-year-old man who was traveling along Bayou Liberty Road. He attempted to pass a car on the right shoulder of the road, and he was riding at a very high speed. He stuck a culvert, crashed, and had to be taken to the hospital for critical injuries. Unfortunately, he passed away at the hospital.
Motorcyclists often attempt to weave in and out of traffic in an effort to get where they're going faster than cars. Unfortunately, in this man's case, this led to his untimely death. If you ride a motorcycle, please be aware that careless maneuvers can lead to serious accidents, and automobile drivers are encouraged to remain mindful of these types of incidents on the road.
No one else was hurt as a result of this crash; however, this could have involved several cars with multiple serious injuries.
