Mobile Car v. Motorcycle Accident Claims Life of Motorcycle Driver

The Mobile auto accident occurred in the midtown area of Mobile, Alabama. According to the Mobile Press-Register, the driver of the motorcycle was transported to Mobile Infirmary Medical Center, which was less than one mile away; sadly the driver did not survive. The report indicates the driver was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The details of the car accident are still under investigation. According to the Alabama Department of Public Safety, there were 2,106 motorcycle accidents in Alabama in 2008, 98 of which resulted in a fatality. The number of Alabama motorcycle wrecks increased from 2007 to 2008 as did the number of fatalities. It’s imperative that drivers be on the look out for motorcycles while they are on the roadway as a minor fender bender in a car accident can end with a tragic result if involved in the same accident with a motorcycle.
