Bremerton Motorcycle Accident Critically Injures Rider

Posted on Feb 10, 2011
Last night during the evening commute a 16 year-old driver turned in front of a motorcycle rider causing a bad Bremerton Washington motorcycle accident.  This Washington motorcycle accident happened at the intersection of Central Valley Road NW and NW Teri Court in bremerton.  

The 16 year-old was driving a Jeep Cherokee attempting to make what I suspect is a left turn, although it's not clear yet which way Jeep was turning.  The jeep could have come from a side street or the opposite direction.  Either way the impact of the motorcycle crash resulted in critcal injuries to the 55 year-old bike rider.  The motorcycle rider was admitted to St. Joseph's Medical Center in Tacoma to treat his serious motorcycle accident injuries.

Tragedy can strike in a blink of an eye.  The motorcycle rider here is lucky to be alive.  Another tragic bike accident happened near Lacey that same evening which resulted in a death of the motorcyclist.  The "left cross" or turn in front type of motorcycle accident is one of the most common causes of Washington motorcycle accidents.  A vehicle turning unexpectedly in front of a motorcycle is highly dangerous and usually leaves the bike no escape route or not enough time to make an evasive maneuver.

Washington drivers need to remember that motorcycles and other two wheeled vehicles will be on the roads whenever the sun comes out in Washington.  Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day, motorcycles are on the road on days like that regardless of winter temperatures.  Please as a driver beware of this and watch for our two wheeled friends. 

When a Washington motorcycle accident seriously injures a motorcycle rider, horrible economic crisis can hit a family that temporarily loses the source of primary financial support.  If you or a loved on has suffered an injury in a Washington motorcycle accident do not wait to get the information you need to begin to process your injury claim or determine if you need the help of an experienced Washington Motorcycle Accident Lawyer.  Before you hire an attorney or speak with the insurance adjuster get your No Cost copy of the 7 Biggest Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Washington Motorcycle Accident Case here on our website.
