Vehicles turning in front of motorcycles account for a considerable number of motorcycle accidents. Because motorcycles are such small vehicles, they are often overlooked by drivers of larger ones. Unfortunately, no matter how motorcycle accidents occur, they often lead to serious injuries or fatalities. With such results, affected individuals may wish to seek compensation.
State and local authorities in Illinois have noted a spike in motorcycle crashes involving fatalities. Officials are warning motorists to be more careful on the road during the summer months, citing a number of factors that have led to the increase in motorcycle accident deaths.
When a car and a loaded garbage truck collide, the occupants of the smaller vehicle are very likely to suffer serious injuries. This was the case in a recent truck accident that sadly took the lives of two men from Illinois.
An Illinois interstate was closed on March 17 for approximately 10 hours after two semi-trucks crashed. The fiery truck accident occurred on Interstate 70 near Brownstown in Fayette County. Sadly, one driver died, and the other was seriously injured in the collision.
