Motorcycle plus drunk driver results in drunk driving accident

Summer is in full swing in Ohio and people with summer vehicles are on the roads enjoying them. Motorcycles are among those vehicles. Some cars sport bumper stickers that bid other drivers to be on the lookout for motorcycles. As they are smaller and more maneuverable, they can be harder to see and can seem to appear out of nowhere. This can lead to a tragic drunk driving accident.

A motorcycle being driven by a gentleman from Massillon was traveling east on a local roadway around 10 p.m. on a recent evening. A car, driven by a woman from Canton, was turning into a driveway. The car struck the motorcycle and the impact caused the motorcycle to overturn. The gentleman on the bike was taken to Mercy Hospital where he died from his injuries.

According to the police report, the driver of the car failed to yield to the motorcycle. Alcohol is believed to have played a role. The crash is still under investigation and no charges have yet been filed.

Sudden death as a result of a drunk driving accident in Ohio can be overwhelming and cause immense grief and anger to the family and loved ones of the deceased. Once the grief begins to subside, the family and loved ones may look for answers as to how and why the accident happened. While no one can bring the loved one back, a knowledgeable personal injury attorney may be able to help bring closure to a difficult and emotionally fraught situation. An experienced lawyer can review the situation and determine if a civil suit is possible against the party deemed responsible for the accident. A successful claim can help with medical costs, final costs and pain and suffering.
