A motorcycle accident in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania claimed the life of the motorcycle rider. Around 3:15 pm, on Thursday afternoon, the fatal motorcycle accident occurred in the Olney neighborhood when a woman driving a car made a U-turn on Rising Sun Avenue and struck the motorcycle. After the Olney motorcycle accident, the 27-year-old rider succumbed to his fatal injuries at the Albert Einstein Medical Center.
Due to the open nature of a motorcycle and lack of significant safety features, a motorcyclist may be extremely vulnerable when an accident occurs. The rider may incur a range of personal injuries or even a fatality during a crash. Unfortunately, in some cases, drivers may fail to use caution when driving their vehicles in the vicinity of a motorcycle or may not see the bike until it is too late.
