Highway 421 Motorcycle Crash Kills Two
Fatal car accidents are a common occurrence on our roads according to many highway patrol reports. This was the case on Tuesday when a motor vehicle accident involving two motorcycle riders happened on US 421 near the Camp Tom Howard intersection.
Importance of Personal Injury Lawyer
Whenever a vehicle crash occurs involving a motorbike, usually, the motorcycle rider dies or obtains severe injuries. Such has been the case quite regularly, according to reports from various departments, such as the North Carolina highway patrol, the Hanover County highway patrol, and other news reports.
This is why it is important to hire a personal injury crash lawyer who specializes in fighting for compensation for victims of a deadly vehicle crash. Such lawyers can be found among the experienced members of the International Fraternity of Personal Injury Warriors.
The US 421 Tennessee Highway Patrol Investigated the Accident
On the day the crash occurred, road users woke up to the unpleasant sight of the Tennessee highway patrol surrounding the spot where the accident happened. Like all accident news reports, a statement was issued by the County sheriff’s office as follows:
- The Multi-vehicle Crash Happened Tuesday Morning
The accident occurred on Tuesday. Dustin York who was riding a Yamaha motorcycle crashed into Samuel Lingerfelt who was on a homemade dirt bike. After the highway patrol investigated the head-on crash, it was determined that Lingerfelt had pulled out in front of the Yamaha.
- Fatalities Occurred
As is common in many motorcycle accidents, there were fatalities. In this case, both riders died. The two-vehicle crash shut down the entire intersection for some time while emergency crews attended to the two victims.
- Cause of the Fatal Crash Unknown
Unlike in a single-vehicle crash, when two drivers are involved it will take some time to determine the cause of the accident and who the at-fault driver was. At the time the accident report from THP was drafted, tests had been ordered to determine if either rider was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Some Worrying Factors
As details of the fatal accident emerged, it was noted that one person was not wearing a crash helmet and riding on a revoked license, while the other had a helmet but did not have a license on them.
