It always seems that bad things happen in pairs. For example, the Nevada Highway Patrol is currently investigating two separate motorcycle accidents that occurred within a short time of each other. According to 8NewsNow.com, one accident resulted in a fatality, and the other accident left a rider hospitalized in critical condition.
The first accident occurred when a Mitsubishi tried to make a U-turn in front of a Nissan near Blue Diamond Road and Rainbow Boulevard, when both vehicles traveled west on Blue Diamond. The Nissan hit the Mitsubishi, and the Mitsubishi remained on the road after the accident. After this accident, a Kawasaki motorcycle hit the car in the road, ejecting the rider. Rescue officials transported the motorcyclist to University Medical Center, where he died.
The second motorcycle accident occurred on southbound Interstate 15. A motorcyclist traveled at least 100 mph and attempted to perform a wheelie. He hit a metal barrier, and he remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Sadly, both of these motorcycle accidents were preventable. If possible, cars should be pulled over to the side of the highway after an accident occurs. In addition, high speeds and motorcycle tricks are dangerous in any environment.
