Perhaps more than any other form of transportation, motorcycles can offer one of the most exciting and intimate ways to see the beauty of the open road. However, motorcyclists and their passengers also face more hazards of the road than other motorists do. Because they are more exposed and with less protection in the case of an accident, they are likely to suffer more serious injuries.
The Arizona Family reported on its website that an accident occurred between a motorcycle and a car. The motorcyclist their passenger suffered serious injuries in an accident that occurred in Phoenix last weekend on Saturday, March 20th. There are not many details as to how the crash happened or who was at fault.
According to a spokesperson with the Phoenix Police Department, the crash happened on Pinnacle Peak Road near the intersection of 36th Avenue when the motorcycle collided with another vehicle at approximately 7:30 P.M.
