Taunton, MA (June 28, 2018) – A motorcyclist was left with life-threatening injuries following a crash with a vehicle on Thursday in Taunton, Massachusetts. The crash occurred Thursday afternoon on Liberty Street. Taunton police rushed to the scene to investigate upon receiving the call. Officers believe the collision occurred when the motorcyclist struck a car which was backing out of a driveway. Police say that the motorcyclist “broadsided” the car, causing the bike to overturn in the roadway.
Rescue units responded to the crash, along with police. The motorcyclist, who is described only as a 20 year old from Taunton, was transported by ambulance to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. A fire department official on scene described the injuries as “bad.” The motorcyclist was initially pinned underneath the car and had to be extricated by the Jaws of Life. Traffic was closed in both directions while the accident was investigated. Police have not identified either the motorcyclist or the driver of the car, which was described as a Chrysler Sebring. There is no word on potential charges at this time.
Boston Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
No one wants to think about being involved in an injury accident. The prospect of a long road to recovery, potential time off of work and debilitating injuries leading to a loss of quality of life are things that scare many accident victims in the aftermath of a crash.
A car crash can cause very serious and catastrophic results for those who have been injured. Most crash victims have no warning that the crash is about to occur and therefore have no time to avoid it or defend themselves from the full impact of the crash. In many cases, drivers are fortunate if they can walk away from a car crash without serious injury. A matter of inches can make the difference in a fatal crash and a less serious one. In this case it appears, very fortunately, that all involved will be able to recover from the crash and move on with their lives.
