Common Motorcycle Accidents Can Happen Easier Than You Might Think

It’s surprisingly easy how motorcycle accidents happen.

Take a look at this Marietta motorcycle crash. The man was riding on Powers Ferry Road near Delk Road Tuesday morning when another driver made a left-hand turn and hit the motorcycle, according to the AJC. The weather conditions were clear and traffic was not heavy. It was just a simple mistaken turn, but that mistake caused serious damages.

While the car driver was injured, the motorcyclist was taken to a nearby hospital under critical condition.

Motorists need to be very aware of motorcycles on the roadway. More often than thought, a car (or truck) collides with a motorcycle causing serious damages and injuries.

As equally important- motorcyclists need to be aware of the road conditions and traffic flow. Riders should also be extremely knowledgeable on Georgia motorcycle laws.
