On Tuesday, Oct. 15, two accidents happened on the same road, within an hour of one another, and both involved motorcycles. The first of the car wrecks took place at approximately 1:57 p.m. A truck being driven by a 62-year-old woman allegedly drove in front of a Harley Davidson, which was being driven by a 48-year-old woman. According to police, the motorcycle driver was pinned beneath her motorcycle for some time, following the accident.
The next accident occurred at approximately 3:14 p.m., on the same road. A 77-year-old woman allegedly struck a Suzuki motorcycle being driven by a 22-year-old man. In both of these Tennessee accidents, the injuries were non-life-threatening. However, each motorcyclist was taken to the hospital to receive treatment for his or her injuries.
The 22-year-old was said to have suffered minor injures, but there is a concern regarding possible head trauma. The 48-year-old complained about pain in the right side of her body, and also sustained fractures in her hand, knee and pelvis. Fortunately, there were no fatalities or catastrophic injuries in either of the car wrecks.
One police sergeant commented that they have been responding to an increased number of motor vehicle accidents lately. In this case, they were forced to respond to both Tennessee car wrecks, one immediately following the other. The motorcyclists who were injured in these two cases may be entitled to financial reimbursement from the drivers who are responsible for crashing into them. Monetary damages could be useful to both of them when it comes to dealing with expensive emergency medical services. They may also be eligible to receive restitution for missed work time, due to their injuries.
