The family of a motorcyclist who was seriously injured in an accident last week in Henry County has pleaded for the public to come forward with any information that can help locate the hit-and-run motorist responsible for the crash.
The motorcyclist, a young father of three boys was riding his motorcycle at about 8 PM, when his motorcycle was struck by a Toyota Highlander. The Highlander was being driven by a young woman. Her car struck the motorcycle, throwing the victim several feet away from the point of impact. He sustained numerous injuries, and remains in a critical condition. According to witnesses, the Highlander driver simply drove off from the scene
Henry County police believe that the crash was caused when the woman failed to yield to the motorcycle while turning left. The victim’s wife has launched an appeal for information about the driver of the Highlander.
Georgia motorcycle accident attorneys know that most of these crashes are caused due to motorists lack of attention. Most motorcycle accidents can be prevented if motorists simply look for motorcycles before changing lanes or turning. A motorcyclist is easy to miss if your full attention is not on the road. This is another tragic example that highlights that all of us need to take extra precaution and care while driving.
