I-264 Crash Kills Motorcyclist in VA Beach
A motorcyclist has died of injuries sustained in a crash in Virginia Beach earlier this month. The 35-year-old was riding his Harley-Davidson bike west on I-264 the night of November 15. When a high-speed Ford Mustang crossed into the path of a Mitsubishi, the resulting chain reaction crash sent the Mustang out of control and colliding into the motorcycle. This caused the motorcyclist to hit a jersey wall and be ejected into traffic.
The motorcyclist was rushed to the hospital for treatment of injuries that officials said were not initially life-threatening. Complications arose, however, resulting in the man’s death. The driver of the Mustang was also hurt in the accident. Police arrested him for driving under the influence.
A Life Cut Short
The victim was just 35, with a lot of life left to live. One person’s decision to drive under the influence robbed him of that chance. While news reports have not indicated who is survived by the motorcyclist, he no doubt leaves behind beloved family and friends who are likely questioning how to continue without him.
Options for the Family
One way to seek justice for their loved one is to pursue legal action against the driver of the Mustang. His decision to drive under the influence makes him potentially liable for a number of damages associated with the wreck. Family members of the deceased may be entitled to compensation surrounding the loss of their loved one. Medical bills, funeral costs and even the therapy costs they incur to deal with their grief may be recovered.
