Motorcycle accidents: 75-year-old Colorado biker dies on I-70

The Colorado State Patrol says authorities are investigating the death of a 75-year-old man from De Beque. In one of many motorcycle accidents that happen in Colorado every year, this man lost his life on Interstate 70. Authorities say the man's bike was struck by a pickup truck at about 6 p.m. on a recent Saturday.

A preliminary report indicates that a pickup truck driver was heading west on the interstate when, for reasons yet to be determined, the driver veered left and went off the roadway before overcorrecting. The driver lost control, and the truck went across the left lane and entered the right traffic lane. The truck smashed into a motorcycle that was heading in the same direction but in the right lane.

Reportedly, the impact of the collision threw the biker off the motorcycle. Although the rider was wearing a helmet, it appears he suffered catastrophic neck and head injuries to which he succumbed before he could be transported to a hospital. A Colorado State Patrol trooper says impairment by alcohol or drugs is not suspected to have played a role, although investigators might determine differently.

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents that involve pickup trucks or other vehicles typically leave bikers with little chance of survival. When a loved one dies in such an accident, the surviving family members might have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit in a civil court. However, they will have to establish negligence on the part of another person or entity. This challenging task might be easier achieved by an experienced Colorado personal injury attorney who can advocate for the family throughout ensuing legal proceedings in pursuit of financial relief.
