Group motorcycle rides are a great way to promote camaraderie among riders and safe riding habits, because a group of motorcyclists is more visible than a lone rider. Nearby riders can render aid or call for help in the case of an accident or mechanical breakdown.
Recently, a motorcyclist was seriously injured after he hit a guardrail and rolled more than 100 feet into a nearby creek. Luckily, he was traveling with two friends who called for help when they saw their friend lose control.
The friends’ quick action may have saved the rider’s life. He was rushed to the hospital with leg injuries and major trauma, while police shut down several lanes of Highway 285 to investigate the crash.
How Can I Help a Motorcyclist After a Crash?
If other motorcyclists are nearby during a collision, they can help move the rider and the bike away from potentially deadly traffic. Fellow riders can also call for help, photograph the scene and provide eyewitness accounts for police.
