42 year old Morris Dwane White of Stanford, Kentucky sustained fatal injuries when a Toyota pickup truck attempted a left turn on U.S. 27 and came into the path of the motorcycle Mr White was riding. It happened at around 7:30 a.m.
Our sympathies and condolences go out to Mr. White’s friends and family during this time of unparalleled grief. Hopefully, the accident investigation will reveal all the causes and answer the questions his friends and family surely have about how and why this tragedy occurred.
While driver error appears to be the clear cut cause here, only by conducting a full investigation can all the true causes be discovered. Faulty mechanics, poor or flawed design, defects in manufacturing and negligent repairs or maintenance should be examined. Furthermore, car and motorcycle wrecks, such as these, also often involved complex questions of law regarding insurance coverage. Hopefully, all responsible parties will have sufficient insurance coverage to pay for the harms and losses they are responsible for causing.
