A seven-year-old motorcycle passenger survived a crash in Gurnee, Illinois on September 10. The driver of a 2006 Kia hit the motorcycle operated by the boy’s mother as she turned left, and police cited the driver for failure to yield to the motorcycle. According to the Daily Herald, the motorcycle ejected the boy and his mother, and they landed underneath another car. Rescuers used the Jaws of Life to extract the motorcycle riders within three minutes. Amazingly, both the mother and the son survived the catastrophic motorcycle collision.
The mother remains hospitalized at Advocate Condell Medical Center, and medical staff transferred her son to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital a couple of days later. There is no information about the status of the victims of this motorcycle accident.
As a driver, always remember to look twice for motorcyclists at intersections. This is one of the best ways to prevent accidents like this one. In addition, if you notice younger passengers on a motorcycle, exercise extra caution when moving around them, since they are more prone to falling off the bike as well as sustaining injuries that are more serious.
