2 Motorcyclists Hurt In Crash

Last night around 8 p.m. a crash between two motorcycles left both parties injured.

The crash happened in Henry County on State Route 109 near Cherry Street in Liberty Center. According to the authorities, there were two motorcycles involved in the crash with one of the bikes rear-ending the other causing the first rider to crash into a utility pole. From the scene of the accident, both bikers were taken to a nearby hospital for the treatment of their injuries.

The names of the two involved have not yet been released as well as to the extent of their injuries.

Statistics

  • In 2007, a total of 7.1 million motorcycles were registered in the U.S.
  • In 2006, 4,810 motorcyclists were killed in road accidents.
  • In the state of Ohio, where there are more than 200,000 registered motorcycle operators, and helmet use is voluntary, it is estimated that there are more than 4,000 motorcycle accidents annually, as well as dozens of fatal crashes.

Liability

Although less common than a car-motorcycle crash, the law is still the same when it comes to two motorcycles involved in an accident. The full details of the accident have yet to be released, but based on the information published it appears as if the motorcyclist that rear-ended the other was at fault and can be held liable for the damage that was caused, including medical treatment and pain and suffering.
