Ohio Motorcycle Crash Leaves Two Riders Gravely Injured

A rare, but deadly, type of motorcycle collision recently sent two men to the hospital. The accident occurred in Howland Township, Ohio, on Thursday night, at the intersection of North Road and Crestview Avenue.

A Pennsylvania man, 50, was riding his 2007 Harley Davidson on North Road when he began turning left onto Crestview Ave. Unfortunately, he didn't notice the 56-year-old Warren man riding his 2001 Big Dog in the opposite direction on North. The two bikes collided in the intersection, ejecting both riders.

The Warren man was taken to St. Joe's Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The rider from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, was taken to Trumbull Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) is investigating the crash, but without knowing more details, it appears that the Harley rider committed a mistake that's often made by caged motorists: Failing to "see" a motorcycle before turning. The accident occurred at 10 p.m., so OSHP will also consider whether alcohol was a factor.

If you or a loved one was wrongly harmed in a motorcycle accident, an experienced Butler County motorcycle accident lawyer can help you examine your legal options.
