Being involved in a car accident is extremely frightening. It may be even scarier for motorcyclists, who are very vulnerable to injury if hit by a car. Because we seemingly read about car accidents every day, it can be easy to forget the consequences that so often result from them. For those involved, they can be life-changing, as one Georgia motorcyclist who required surgery after a crash may now be experiencing.
An accident involving a motorcycle on Interstate 75 in Georgia left at least one person injured after a landscaping truck blew a tire. The blown tire forced three vehicles, including the motorcycle, to swerve out of the way of the truck. However, the motorcyclist subsequently lost control of the vehicle, resulting in the motorcycle accident. Emergency responders took the 74-year-old motorcyclist to an area hospital, where he required surgery for his injuries.
