Tucson, AZ (December 5, 2019) – The Tucson Police Department has confirmed that a man riding a motorcycle on the west side has died on Wednesday.
According to officers from the TPD, the man was involved in a collision at the intersection of Flowing Wells Road and Kleindale Road. The victim has not yet been identified, and it is unclear how the accident occurred at this time. Tucson EMTs were on the scene to treat the man and transported him to an area hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident at this time.
Our deepest condolences go out to the deceased victim’s family. Our thoughts are with any injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Across the state, motorcycle wrecks have more than doubled in the last 25 years, per the latest data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Furthermore, recent crash statistics indicate that one in seven fatalities on roads nationwide occurred on a motorcycle. Due to the nature of riding, motorcyclists are far more vulnerable to serious injuries or even death than vehicle drivers, even while wearing helmets and protective gear.
Whether it’s long-term physical issues and costly medical bills or lost wages from time spent recovering, motorcycle crash victims suffer from tragic, unforeseen circumstances. But the victims and their families affected by these serious wrecks can contact a Phoenix accident lawyer for help. In some cases, a skilled lawyer can help victims get justice and their fair compensation to cover damages.
