Tulsa Police Looking for Fatal Motorcycle Accident Hit and Run Suspect

By Car Accident Help on July 8, 2011

According to a story in The Oklahoman, police in Tulsa are looking for a driver responsible for the death of a motorcyclist. After the crash, the driver fled the scene. The motorcycle rider was a 52-year-old man who was traveling on a Tulsa road when a gray or silver Chevrolet Camaro turned in front of him. The man was thrown from the motorcycle, landing on the street. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital. The driver of the Camaro left the scene of the crash and is wanted by police.

In a July 2009 data report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), figures show that while the number of people injured in motor vehicle crashes has decreased since 1999, the number of motorcyclist injuries has increased. In fact, from 1998 to 2007, the number of motorcyclists injured in crashes increased 110 percent. Within that same time period, data analysis shows that about 90 percent of motorcyclists injured in crashes were operating the vehicle while 10 percent were passengers. The largest number of motorcyclists injured fall within the 20-29 age group.

When cars and motorcycles collide, the resulting injuries are often catastrophic. Due to the lack of protection offered by motorcycles and the discrepancy in size and weight between cars and motorcycles, the motorcyclist and any passengers are at increased danger for injury and death as compared to those inside a car. The Tulsa motorcycle accident attorneys at the Maples Law Firm know how difficult it can be to cope with the aftermath of a motorcycle accident.
