Washington drivers and motorcycle riders must stay alert to the fact that when it comes to summer driving, accidents become more common. That’s an unfortunate reality, but the reality nonetheless. And as such, drivers and riders should not ignore the risks associated with driving during the summertime.
One of the problems associated with this time of the year is that when it’s warmer out, more drivers and riders hit the road. With more drivers and riders sharing the road, accidents will also be more likely to occur.
Yet another motorcycle accident has been reported in Washington. The collision took place in Bucoda on Friday evening. Unfortunately, the rider died due to his injuries.
According to the reports, the 38-year-old rider was riding his blue 2002 Harley-Davidson XL 1200 in the north lanes of the state Route 507 when the rider crashed. He was allegedly attempting to avoid traffic.
Due to the impact, the rider was ejected from the motorcycle.
The Tenino rider was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment but on Monday, he succumbed to his injuries.
The Washington State Patrol has announced that they are still investigating the accident and that more details about the cause that led to this accident should be available in the near future.
We hope that the rider’s family and friends are receiving the support they need in this time of need. We also hope that authorities are working around the clock to make sure the factor that led to this accident is brought up to light. We urge drivers and riders to learn from other accidents so they may avoid experiencing similar collisions. That’s why it’s important for us to report on these collisions when they happen.
