New Port Richey, FL – A 21-year-old motorcyclist passed away early Monday after sustaining injuries in a traffic collision that caused him to exit the roadway.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the Hudson biker was traveling north on Little Road around 2 p.m. Sunday when he lost control of his motorcycle, headed toward the median and crashed against a guardrail.
He was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, where he died.
Troopers still do not know what caused the man to lose control of his motorcycle. An investigation remained under way as of Monday morning.
While motorcycles can be fun and exciting, they can also be deadly. There are many challenges that are presented to the driver and passengers of motorcycles, and while bikers have the same rights as any other motorist on the road, many drivers do not always respect that rule. Tragic motorcycle crashes often occur when a car, truck or SUV executes a left turn in front of a motorcycle, sideswipes a bike or simply fails to keep a watchful eye out for motorcyclists sharing the road.
Numerous injuries can result from a motorcycle wreck, some of the most common being:
• Fractures and Broken Bones
• Traumatic Brian Injuries
• Concussions or Memory Loss
• Spinal Cord Trauma
• Loss of Limbs
