Drunk Driver Collides Head On with Motorcyclist

istock_000007435695xsmallA Eden, North Carolina man has been charged with a DUI following a fatal accident last weekend. Police say the incident occurred shortly before 2 PM the afternoon of June 11, 2017. A car heading south on Route 610 ran off the right side of the road. When the driver tried to get back onto the road, he over-corrected, steering into the path of a motorcyclist heading the opposite direction. Tragically, the man riding the motorcycle died at the scene of the crash. The man at the wheel of the car was later charged with driving while intoxicated. The investigation into the accident is still ongoing.

We send our condolences to the family of the man killed in the wreck. Bikers put their lives at risk for a hobby they are passionate about, and more often than not, other drivers are to blame for their deadly accidents. We encourage the family and loved ones of the victim to reach out to our team for a free, no-risk consultation. An experienced Virginia motorcycle lawyer can help answer questions and pursue justice on behalf of your loved one.

The man responsible for this accident could have prevented this tragic collision by choosing not to drink and drive. In 2017, there is no excuse to ever get behind the wheel after drinking. With ride share apps like Uber and Lyft growing in popularity, safe rides home are usually only a few clicks away. Even in more rural areas without these services, it’s easier than ever to call a cab or a friend for a ride home.
