News of a terrible accident has spread throughout Massachusetts and the surrounding region. A woman suffered grave injuries when the motorcycle she was riding on as a passenger was struck by an enclosed vehicle. The car crash remains under investigation by Massachusetts authorities, but the details that have been made available are disturbing to many.
The accident took place in Webster on a recent Saturday evening. A man and woman were riding a motorcycle as they exited Indian Ranch, a music venue in the area. As they neared the intersection of Route 16 and Gore Road, the motorcycle collided with another vehicle.
When an accident occurs between a motorcycle and an enclosed vehicle, there is little doubt as to which party will emerge the worse for wear. That was the case in this accident, and the woman suffered serious injury to one of her legs. Reports are not fully clear on the matter, but the Mendon Police Chief confirmed that there may have been an amputation of the limb during or after the accident.
The woman's current condition is not known, and no charges have yet been filed in the matter. It is too early to say which party may be to blame in the Massachusetts car crash, as the investigation has not yet been completed. As a passenger on the motorcycle, however, the injured woman has the right to pursue a claim for personal injuries against one or both drivers, depending upon the gathered evidence. If the evidence documents that the negligence of one or both drivers caused the crash and her subsequent injuries, a civil court may entertain a request for the entry of a monetary judgment for financial losses sustained by the accident victim.
