An accident on a secondary Montana highway left a Wyoming motorcyclist dead and two other people injured, according to KBZK news in Bozeman, Montana. The motorcyclist was headed westbound on Montana Secondary Highway 314 near Kirby at 2:15 p.m. when he crossed over the double yellow line as he went around a curve and struck a Ford Escort headed eastbound.
The driver of the Escort, a 66-year-old female from Sheridan, Wyoming, and her passenger were both wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. They each only sustained minor injuries in the accident and required no medical attention. The motorcyclist was also 66 years old and from Sheridan, Wyoming. Neither speed nor alcohol played a role in causing the accident, according to authorities. However, the roads were wet at the time of the crash.
Whether you’re 26 or 66, riding a motorcycle is an exhilarating experience. However, the exhilaration should never come at the expense of riding responsibly. There are too many factors that can lead to a fatal motorcycle accident, such as negligent drivers and dangerous weather and road conditions, for the responsibilities of riding a motorcycle safely to be taken lightly. If you or a loved one were the victim of a motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you may be owed compensation.
