Motorcycle Accident on I-95 Sends Two to Hospital
Two motorcycles and a jeep were involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday, June 10, 2012, on northbound Interstate 95 in Howard County. The two motorcycle riders were taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, one in critical and the other in serious condition, according to The Baltimore Sun. The driver of the jeep was not injured.
Three of the northbound lanes of I-95 were closed for 45 minutes after the motorcycle crash. Police had not determined the cause of the motorcycle accident.
Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents
Bike riders often sustain more traumatic injuries, and even deaths, than occupants of cars and trucks. Motorcyclists don’t have the protection of a motor vehicle and may be thrown from motorcycle to the pavement with such force as to cause traumatic internal injuries, fractures, and head injuries — even if they are wearing helmets.
Many drivers of cars and trucks are oblivious to motorcycles. That’s why motorcycle organizations have launched a campaign to “share the road” in an effort to heighten motor vehicle–motorcycle safety awareness.
