New Hampshire Motorcyclist Collides with State Trooper Police Car
A New Hampshire motorcyclist ran into the police car of a state trooper IN New Hampshire seriously injuring the rider. According to witness and police reports, the state trooper was making a U-turn to attend to a broken down car when the motorcycle accident happened.
The man driving the Yamaha motorcycle was in the middle of holiday weekend traffic, heading home. The state trooper was apparently attempting to make a U-turn in the middle of the road to work with some other drivers when the man collided with the police car.
The motorcycle rider hit the driver-side rear quarter panel of the police car and then tumbled down the road after the collision. The man had suffered serious injuries to his abdomen and was flown to a Maine hospital to be treated. At this time, police are still investigating the accident to find out who was at fault and what exactly happened.
This type of motorcycle accident shows that police officers and state troopers are not exempt from being involved in, or even causing, motorcycle accident and car accidents. While on the road, police are held to the same rules, if not more strict rules, as other drivers. However, motorcyclists need to remember that they are harder to see due to the size of their motorcycles. Don’t assume you will be seen by everyone on the road.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to recover compensation for injuries suffered. Please contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney today to schedule an initial consultation.
