Arizona auto accident results in death of motorcyclist

Motorcyclists are keenly aware that they face risks that drivers of other kinds of vehicles do not have to contend with. Their increased exposure to potential danger makes it much more likely that they will be injured or even killed if they are involved in an auto accident. This is what police believe may have happened to one Arizona motorcycle rider who was killed in a crash involving a car.

Authorities say that the accident happened at an intersection when the motorcycle was traveling along a roadway, and a car apparently turned in front of it. The bike rider was said to be transported to a local hospital, but died due to his injuries. The driver of the car was not hurt.

Police have not charged the 19-year-old car driver with any crimes, though they have said that they are still investigating precisely what happened. They don't think that speed or alcohol had any role in the cause of the accident. The roadway was to open to traffic after several hours of police investigation.

When a fatal accident of any kind occurs, the family of the victim reserves the right to file a civil suit against the party deemed responsible for the crash, even if that party does not face any criminal charges. Such a lawsuit could result in monetary damages being awarded to the family that may be used to cover any damages incurred as a result of the auto accident. Arizona police will likely have answers for this crash soon, and hopefully they will help the family begin to heal.
