When an accident involves a motorcycle and a car, the brunt of the injuries are often suffered by the occupants of the motorcycle. Motorcycle accidents cause numerous deaths each year, and leave many more suffering from serious injuries. In these cases, Maryland police are often given the task of finding out what circumstances lead to the accident, so they can get to the bottom of who was responsible.
Spring has arrived in Maryland, and that means, among other things, that motorcyclists will be out and about enjoying the open air. With the freedom of the road comes risk, however, and unfortunately riders suffer serious injuries each year because of other drivers' negligence. Motorcycle awareness is a constant struggle in Maryland and throughout the U.S., and a recent accident in Frederick County illustrates why.
