Motorcyclist T-Boned in North County, St.Louis,Missouri
Posted on March 19th, 2011 by Zane Cagle
A female motorcyclist was hit by two cars in Bellefontaine Neighbors, Missouri Wednesday night. The motorcycle accident took place before 8:45 p.m. on northbound Bellefontaine Road at Interstate 270.
Police and KSDK report that the motorcyclist was T-boned by one vehicle and ejected before begin struck by an oncoming vehicle. The victim was able to speak with police before being transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital and her current condition is unknown.
Investigation in to the motorcycle and auto accident continues as well. As Missouri and Illinois experience spring days and weather turns warm, more and more motorcycles will be out on the road. Motorcycle collisions with automobiles increase in the spring and summer months in the Midwest due to the weather and more frequent riding. There is always a period in the spring when car and truck drivers have to increase their awareness for motorcycle riders as they are not accustomed to them being on the highways after several winter months. Motorcycles by nature are much smaller and can easily be missed by drivers due to the motorcycles disappearing in the driver’s blind spots. Motorcycles take up much less of the road therefore; car and truck drivers alike must keep a vigilant look out for them.
As this attorney has previously blogged regarding motorcycle accidents, motorcyclist have less protection than drivers of other vehicles thereby increasing their chance of injury should they be involved in a collision.
