The sound of the engine rumbling, the wind in your face and feeling like your flying; this is the freedom and exhilaration that riding a motorcycle gives you. Couple that great feeling with the gas economy of a motorcycle and you have a transportation source unrivaled by any other. More motorcycles are on the road with the reports showing a 25% increase in sales for 2011. More and more people are taking to Indianapolis roads on bikes, enjoying the wonderful summer weather. Unfortunately this also brings an increase in motorcycle and car accidents. Motorcycles are often hard to see and hear on the roadways, usually missed by other motorists; often after it’s too late.
This may very well be what caused the collision between a car and a motorcycle in downtown Indianapolis during the early hours of July 13th. Around 1:15 a.m., a biker collided with an Oldsmobile near the corners of North 12th and North Meridian Street. It appears that the motorcycle was attempting to turn and that the driver of the car turned in front of him. Did the driver of the car see the cyclist?
No one knows because the driver fled the scene, leaving the injured motorcyclist on the side of the road. The severely injured man was transported to Methodist Hospital where tragically he was pronounced dead. Due to the negligence of another, a wife has lost her husband, children have lost their father, and parents lost a son. The Indianapolis Metro Police will no doubt apprehend the guilty party responsible and they will be held accountable to fullest extent allowed by law.
