Intoxication Suspected of Being Factor in Serious Motorcycle Accident

Colorado Springs Police are investigating a serious injury accident that occurred when a motorcycle and a Ford Explorer collided recently. The crash happened late on a Friday when a man was driving his motorcycle through the intersection of Cimarron and Tejon. Investigators believe that the motorcycle was already in the intersection when the driver of the SUV failed to see it and began making a turn into the same intersection. The SUV cut in front of the motorcycle and the motorcyclist was unable to stop or avoid the larger vehicle. He struck the right front passenger side of the SUV and was thrown off his motorcycle. He landed in the roadway and suffered serious injuries.

Emergency medical personnel promptly arrived as well as authorities. The motorcycle driver was rushed to the hospital and in serious condition but is expected to survive his injuries. The driver of the Explorer, 41-year-old M.G., was not injured in the crash. Police spoke to M.G. and became suspicious that the man was driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. He was taken into custody pending further investigation into the injury accident as well as chemical tests for intoxicants. If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another driver or due to some other negligence then consult with a personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.

Injured in a motorcycle accident in Colorado Springs?

Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries such as serious head trauma, brain injuries, spinal cord injury, internal injuries, broken bones, fractures, sprains, dislocations, serious lacerations and contusions as well as catastrophic injuries such as amputation or paralysis. When another driver is responsible for causing injuries to a motorcyclist through fault of driving while intoxicating, texting while driving or simply failing to observe that there was a motorcycle in the roadway then that individual should be held fully responsible for all damages they have caused. You may be able to recover compensation for all pain, medical expenses, lost wages, property damage and other damages with the help of skilled legal representation.
