Motorcyclist and passenger injured in Pennsylvania accident

As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, motorcycle season in Pennsylvania will soon be at its end. In the meantime, riding a motorcycle is as dangerous as ever. Negligent drivers all over the state can cause a serious motorcycle accident in just seconds.

In a recent motorcycle accident, two people were sent to area hospitals. According to reports, this motorcycle accident occurred on a city street around 12:30 a.m. Police said that the accident involved a motorcycle and another car. While the details about how the accident occurred have not been reported, reports claim that the 26-year-old motorcyclist was injured in the accident.

The man was taken to a hospital and treated for his injuries. A 21-year-old woman who was a passenger on the motorcycle was also injured in the accident. Both the passenger and the motorcyclist are said to be in stable condition.

An investigation into the accident will be critical in determining why this motorcycle accident occurred. In particular, determining if the other driver was negligent in causing the accident will be important for the accident victims.

When a negligent driver causes a motorcycle accident, that driver can be held liable for the injuries that occur. These injuries can result in high medical costs, lost wages, rehabilitation costs and more. Through a personal injury suit, the negligent driver can be required to pay these costs.

Sometimes a negligent party will want to avoid court and offer a low settlement amount early in the case. People should be careful about taking these settlements without first carefully discussing their options with a legal professional, because they are often not enough to cover all the damage caused by the negligent driver.

Motion for Judgment of Acquittal for a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) prosecution was granted by Lycoming County President Judge Nancy L. Butts, after Attorney Kyle Rude argues that the Commonwealth could not prove Ms. Steinbacher was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. Ms. Steinbacher was arrested after Williamsport City Police believed she switched seats with her boyfriend in order to avoid an arrest for DUI.
