Aleksandar Dejanovic of Louisville suffered serious injuries after alleged drunk driver Deon Eiland crashed into the rear of Mr. Dejanovic's motorcycle with his car. Apparently, Mr. Dejanovic completed a turn from Shady Villa Drive onto Poplar Level Road when the collision occurred.
Mr. Dejanovic was ejected from his motorcycle and crashed into the Eiland car windshield. Although he apparently was wearing a helmet, he suffered a skull fracture and internal injuries that have left him in critical condition.
Eiland was charged with multiple crimes including DUI, wanton endangerment, assault and resisting arrest. He refused to be tested for his blood alcohol level at the scene or at Metro Corrections.
Let's hope that Mr. Dejanovic can fully recover from his injuries. This appears to be an open and shut case of driver error and the only question is whether there will be enough insurance coverage to take care of the harms and losses suffered by Mr. Dejanovic. Still though, the seriousness of the matter requires a full and complete investigation that explores all factors and possibilities. One question that comes to mind is why the helmet he was wearing did not offer better protection, if possible.
