Authorities are reporting that a 32-year-old Louisville man was killed when his motorcycle crashed into a car in Boone County on Saturday afternoon. Police are reporting that the motorcyclist was driving east on Burlington Pike at Shady Hollow when his motorcycle collided head-on with a 2003 Honda Accord driven by a 50-year-old Florence woman at about 2:20 p.m.
Our sympathies and condolences go out to the friends and families of everyone involved. Hopefully, all responsible parties will have sufficient insurance coverage to pay for the harms and losses they are responsible for causing. It is often advantageous for an accident reconstructionist to be consulted to investigate a wreck of this magnitude. Though driver error appears to be a culprit, only a full investigation can determine whether there may have been other causes such as maintenance or design issues of the vehicles or roadways.
We use our blog as a forum to educate the public using real life events. However, we are very sensitive to the fact that these real life events have resulted in a tragedy that will inflict great pain and sorrow on those involved and those close to the victim(s). As such, we understand that they may not approve, and we will immediately remove a post if a victim or their loved ones makes that request.
