Our readers in Connecticut are likely to continue to see motorcycles on the roadways for at least a few more weeks, as the calendar turns from autumn to winter. Many motorcyclists are trying to make the most of the fall weather. Unfortunately, that means that motorcyclists continue to be in danger from other drivers and the collisions they cause.

According to a recent report, one such collision occurred on September 28, and the result was a motorcyclist dying in the hospital in the aftermath of the car crash. The reports indicate that the motorcyclist, a 53-year-old man from Hartford, was driving north on Washington Street in Hartford at approximately 6 p.m., and a Toyota Camry was driving south in the area at the same time. The collision involving the two vehicles occurred near the intersection of Washington Street and Retreat Avenue.

Law enforcement officials were still investigating the crash in the immediate days afterward. There were no initial indications of who was at fault in the accident, or whether or not intoxication or traffic violations were involved. The driver of the Camry was reportedly unharmed in the collision.

Although there is no indication as to how this recent motorcycle accident occurred, the surviving family members of the motorcyclist will be keen to understand how their family member died. The unfortunate reality is that motorcyclists have far less protection in collisions than drivers of automobiles, so they are rarely unharmed in these types of crashes. If the driver of the Camry was at fault in any way, the motorcyclist’s surviving family members may have a legal claim.
