Motorcycles are a common sight on the roads in Minnesota. In general, cars and motorcycles will share the road safely and both will keep a close eye on one another. Still, given the vulnerability of motorcyclists, it is not unusual for there to be serious injury and death when there is a car accident with a motorcycle. After this type of crash, those who were affected - whether it is due to injuries or fatalities - should understand how imperative it is to have legal assistance from an attorney who is experienced in car accidents.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a local car dealer was killed when a vehicle turned in front of his motorcycle. The accident occurred at around 2:00 p.m. The man, 60, was reportedly heading west on a 2007 Harley-Davidson when a 19-year-old woman driving a 2011 Hyundai Sonata turned into his path. He crashed into the car. He was taken to the hospital where he later died. Troopers said the man was not wearing a helmet, but under Minnesota law, he was not required to. The man owned or part-owned several dealerships. The driver of the Hyundai was not hurt. No alcohol was involved and the case is still being investigated with possible charges pending.
