Two injured in head-on collision in Wisconsin

Those on motorcycles can often sustain serious injuries due to the negligence of other drivers. Head-on collisions involving motorcycles and larger vehicles put motorcyclists in extreme danger of injury or death. Two people were injured in such an accident in Yorkville, Wisconsin. The auto accident involved a motorcycle and a pickup truck.

The preliminary investigation conducted by police concluded that a 2001 Ford F250 was traveling westbound on STH 11. The driver crossed fully into eastbound lanes of traffic and collided with a 2010 Harley Davidson motorcycle. The truck then ran off the road and hit a tree in the south ditch of the road.

Both drivers were injured in the accident. The truck's driver was taken to St Catherine's Hospital in Kenosha for treatment of injuries that were not believed to be life threatening. The driver on the motorcycle was taken to Froedtert Memorial Hospital in Milwaukee by air. Despite having a helmet on, the motorcyclist was suspected of having head injuries. It's unknown if the driver of the pickup was wearing a seat belt. Police are continuing their investigation of the accident.

This accident shows how dangerous a negligent driver can be to those on motorcycles. However, this driver's alleged negligence could have injured someone in any type of vehicle. Head-on collisions caused by crossing into oncoming lanes of traffic put lives at risk. Victims of these types of accidents are commonly injured, such as the motorcyclist in this story, or killed. Hopefully, the injuries to the victim of this accident aren't too serious. It's also in his best interests to understand how the law can help him recover financially from the accident. An attorney may be able to him recover the compensation car accident victims are entitled too, such as medical expenses and lost wages.
