2 injured in Ohio motorcycle crash

Two motorcyclists are recovering after it appears they were hit by a 42-year-old man from Franklin, Ohio. The man seems to have been driving while intoxicated along Dayton Oxford Road as he approached the intersection with Heritage Road in Franklin when he hit a motorcycle in oncoming traffic. The Ohio Highway Patrol reports that the man crossed the center line as he traveled along and hit the eastbound motorcycle.

There were two people on the motorcycle at the time of the crash, a 44-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman. The man was driven to Atrium Medical Center in nearby Middletown while the woman needed to be transported by medical helicopter to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. Though it appears the man was released from the hospital within a day of being admitted. The woman remained hospitalized in fair condition.

Though some people in Ohio may believe that motorcyclists are dangerous and risky because they operate vehicles that have very little protection, it does not mean that they are open targets on the road. Just like with any other motorist, motorcyclists must be respected and given a safe berth, allowing all motorists to travel safely on Ohio roads.

When these kinds of accidents do happen, however, many injured motorcyclists will file personal injury lawsuits to cover the medical bills and other costs that inevitably come with an accident. These lawsuits also bring a sense of justice to the victims, knowing that they have made a reckless or careless driver pay for his or her mistakes.
