Fiery wreck halts motorcycle convoy in Fall Branch

One of the primary dangers that motorcyclists in Shelby face is not being seen by others on the road. In most motorcycle accidents there is never any malicious intent involved, but rather a simple failure to do one's due diligence in ensuring that no one is traveling in the lane that they want to turn or merge into. It is easy for entire cars to disappear into another vehicle's blind spot; imagine, then, how much more difficult it may be for one to not see a motorcycle driving in the same area. Should one proceed to make a maneuver on the road with a motorcycle traveling in said blind spot, it may be easy to assume who would get the worst of were the two vehicles to collide. 

That assumption was proven to be true in a recent accident that occurred on Interstate 81 in Fall Branch. Several members of a convoy of motorcycles were injured following a collision with a tractor-trailer. One in particular was dragged underneath the trailer after colliding with it. That motorcyclist's bike ended up setting the trailer on fire, after which the others collisions happened. the extent of the injuries suffered by the motorcyclists involved was not reported; the truck driver was not hurt. 

Although whether the tractor-trailer in this incident turned into the motorcyclists is not known, one can envision how difficult it might be for a trucker to see a motorcycle traveling alongside him or her. Extra caution in these situations is needed to avoid potentially devastating accidents. Motorcyclists who have been involved in such accidents may want to secure the services of an attorney in order to seek compensation.
