Maryland biker injured after truck's left turn

America is one of the best places in the world to have a motorcycle, with its fuel efficiency, maneuverability and feel of excitement. The scenic hills and picturesque coastlines of Maryland make it one of the most attractive states to adventurers and commuters alike who prefer to see the roads from behind handlebars.

Other vehicles are the most obvious danger to riders, as even a minor collision with a car or truck could result in serious injury, permanent disability or death for a motorcycle driver or passenger. Common dangers to bikers include drivers at dawn or dusk who fail to see motorcycles, as well as drivers turning left into the path of a bike.

A 46-year-old man from Ellicott City was injured on his motorcycle recently when he was riding in his hometown. He was riding northbound on a well-trafficked road when a pickup truck turned left in front of him.

The experienced rider laid his motorcycle down in a controlled slide to avoid a T-bone collision with the truck, but this did not prevent injury. The motorcycle driver was airlifted to a Baltimore shock trauma center for treatment of serious injuries related to the crash. Evacuation and site clean-up kept the road closed for hours after the incident.

The driver of the truck was uninjured and remained on the scene. This was fortunate in many ways, as a driver who leaves the scene of an accident involving a motorcycle or other vehicles is punishable by fines and possible jail time in the state of Maryland.
