Some very unfortunate news. Per WLKY, a motorcyclist was killed in a wreck near Middletown on the afternoon of August 18, 2022. Louisville Metro Police Department and EMS were at the scene of the incident that occurred on South Beckley Station Road a little after 2:30 p.m. The police arrived and found the motorcyclist, who had life-threatening injuries when the police arrived.
Per Louisville Metro Police Department’s initial investigation, the motorcyclist was headed northbound when they drove into a right-hand curve and lost control of the motorcycle, forcing the motorcyclist into the southbound lane where the motorcycle collided with a car. The collision threw the motorcyclist onto the hood of the car. The motorcyclist was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital and was pronounced dead an hour later.
Motorcycle accidents are often fatal. It is important for all motorcyclists to take as many safety precautions as possible before heading out the road. While in this instance it first appears that the driver of the car is to blame for the incident (and that very well could be the case), it never hurts to consult with a lawyer to see if there is any potentially liable party to pursue.
