CAR-MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT KILLS DRIVER

The driver of a motorcycle died in Pittsburgh's Point Breeze area of the city after colliding with a car. The crash happened at Penn and Dallas Avenues in the mid-morning on Tuesday, August 5th. The 29 year-old driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at UPMC Presbyterian Hosptial. No charges have been filed, and the accident is still under investigation.

With warmer weather, more motorcyclists are taking to our roads. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 4,810 motorcyclists died in deadly highway crashes in 2006-a number that grew for the ninth year in a row. Even more frightening is the fact that over one of every nine road fatalities in 2006 involved a motorcyclist.

Why do motorcyclists continue to be involved in accidents? Some of the reasons are:

  • The small size of a motorcycle makes it more difficult for other drivers to see and motorcycles often fallout of view behind larger vehicles like commercial trucks.
  • Often it is difficult to determine how fast a motorcyle is moving.
  • Motorcycle riders have only protective clothing standing and helmets between their bodies and the impact of a collision.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has made some recommendations to help prevent motorcycle accidents. To view those recommendations, visit the NHTSA's website at http://www.nhtsa.gov/planners/ShareTheRoad2008/emm/fact.doc.
