Broken Arrow Motorcyclist Collides with Hay Bales, Injuries Not Serious

By Car Accident Help on November 12, 2010

A motorcyclist was exiting the Muskogee Turnpike into the westbound lanes of the Creek Turnpike when he crashed into some hay bales that had accidentally fallen from a semi-truck, according to NewsOn6.com. Luckily, the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet and was reported in stable condition. The state trooper who arrived at the scene cited the driver of the semi-truck with not properly securing the load. The article states that the motorcyclist was only thrown five feet, which could mean that he was already slowing down to attempt to avoid the bales when the Oklahoma motorcycle accident occurred.

Thankfully, no serious injuries were reported by either party involved in this Oklahoma motorcycle crash; however, that is not always the case in motorcycle collisions. Oftentimes, motorcycle crashes leave the motorcyclist with serious or even fatal injuries since they are not protected by the metal exterior like occupants of a passenger car or large truck are. In addition, according to the American Motorcyclist Association, motorcycle helmets are only required for persons under 18 years of age in the state of Oklahoma. With fewer people wearing helmets, serious injury is more likely to occur.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an Oklahoma motorcycle accident due to another individual’s negligence, it would be highly beneficial to contact an experienced personal injury attorney. The Oklahoma City motorcycle crash lawyers at The Maples Law Firm have the knowledge and resources necessary to handle a wide variety of motorcycle and other personal injury cases.
