What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Memorial ride turns into motorcycle pile up on I-95

Posted on November 13th, 2012 No Comments

A memorial ride on Interstate 95 in Jacksonville for a fallen member of the Ruff Ryders Motorcycle Club turned into a major motorcycle pileup just before noon on Saturday. A total of nine motorcycles were involved in the major accident. The Florida Highway Patrol reports no casualties but some serious injuries.

The pileup started near Butler Boulevard involving three motorcycles. A driver in a Hyundai quickly slowed to a stop to avoid colliding with the crashed motorcycles, which then caused motorcyclists behind the vehicle to crash. The motorcyclist directly behind the car was unable to stop in time and was ejected from his bike after hitting the car. Another motorcyclist behind him also crashed and was ejected.

The events created a chain reaction. According to the Florida Times-Union, another motorcyclist collided into the side of two tractor trailers that also stopped to avoid the accident. Two more motorcycles behind the rider then crashed as well. Several of the injured motorcyclists were taken to the hospital in serious condition. Authorities are investigating the cause of the first accident.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident that was caused by a reckless or negligent motorist, legal action could provide you with the financial compensation you deserve to pay for your medical bills and repairs.
