According to CBS 5, unsafe road conditions resulted in the death of a 28-year-old motorcyclist from Grand Junction, Colorado while he was riding south on Colorado 141 near mile marker 143. No one else was injured in the crash. A nearby resident was on a walk with his family when he discovered the motorcyclist severely injured at the bottom of a hill off the side of the road.
While making a curve to the right, the motorcycle had difficulty remaining in the right lane. The motorcycle shifted increasingly to the left around the turn until there was nothing to prevent it from falling off the edge. The way down the hill was covered in thick, heavy brush that ejected the rider from the motorcycle upon collision. He died of blunt force head injuries.
As winter time approaches and the days grow shorter, it is very important to be vigilant of unsafe road conditions that can prove fatal to even the most experienced motorcyclists. Bad weather, excessive speed, reckless driving, adverse road conditions and defective parts can result in fatal motorcycle accidents. Lacking the protective coating offered by automobiles, even small accidents can result in serious injury, such as back and neck injuries, lacerations and spinal cord injuries.
