Mesa, AZ (August 20, 2019) – On Thursday night, police claim that a man was severely injured in a motorcycle accident involving his wife and a DUI driver in Mesa.
At the time, Amber Engle and her husband, Dion Marshall, were riding along on South Lindsay Road on their motorcycle when they were involved in an accident with a DUI driver.
Engle said that she felt her husband’s hands go around her and then they landed on the ground. Neither were wearing helmets at the time.
Engle received four broken ribs, road rash, and a fractured thumb as well as overall swelling. Dion, however, received more serious injuries like bleeding to his brain.
The driver who struck them was identified as 31-year-old Michael Richardson, who was arrested on DUI charges.
The investigation into the accident is ongoing at this time.
Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are extended to those recovering from this serious crash.
Across Arizona in 2011, it was reported that approximately 3,058 accidents involving motorcyclists took place. This is mostly due to the fact that, when placed against other passenger drivers, these accidents tend to cause serious injuries because motorcyclists have few protections from harm.
