As the weather improves, more and more people in Colorado will be bringing out their motorcycles. For many riders, this is good news, but experienced riders also know that this means there is an increased risk of motorcycle vs. car accidents. Recently, a teenager was involved in an accident and is in the hospital in serious condition.
The 19-year-old exited a strip mall onto South Academy in Colorado Springs. As he was headed southbound on Academy, a truck heading north turned into the path of the motorcycle rider without warning. The young man had no chance at avoiding a collision with the truck.
