Details regarding the accident are scarce. Irrelevant of the fact of who is at fault for motorcycle accidents, approximately 5,000 people die in the U.S. each year. Motorcyclists are, of course, not as protected as other drivers contained in their steel frame cars and trucks. Even those who ride cautiously and safely are still at risk due to the negligence of other drivers and in some cases parts manufacturers and service technicians.
