Motorcyclist flown to hospital after serious crash with vehicle

As the weather warms up, it's going to be more common to see motorcyclists on the roads. For the most part, passenger vehicle drivers and motorcyclists do fine together. Unfortunately, drivers who don't see motorcyclists can pull out in front of them or make mistakes that put the motorcyclists' lives at risk.

Take for example a situation like the recent one in Clark. The local fire department had to create a landing zone for a medical helicopter at the scene of a motorcycle-versus-car collision near to Mother Seton Regional High School. The crash had been severe, and a 58-year-old motorcyclist was badly injured. He had to be flown to Newark's University Hospital. Another person involved, a 47-year-old woman, was not injured.

It's not clear what caused this accident, but it's easy to see that a motorcyclist has little protection when hit by a car. Drivers who are involved in collisions like this must stay at the scene and contact the police immediately because every second counts for someone who has been hit and injured.

If you're a motorcyclist who has been struck while riding a motorcycle, it's important that you stay where you are and wait for medical care. The emergency team should arrive quickly so long as someone calls 911 at the scene. If you cannot call, ask someone else to place the call as soon as possible.

After you're struck by a motor vehicle, getting appropriate medical attention is your top priority. Keep those records, however, so that you can give them to your attorney as you prepare to make a claim against the driver who was at fault.
