A 22-year-old man is dead after crashing his motorcycle on Interstate 691 in Meriden, Connecticut. State police reported the accident and fatality. According to police, the rider lost control of his 2007 Kawasaki after striking a vehicle he was trying to pass. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.
The ultimate cause of the motorcycle accident was not entirely clear immediately after the crash. State police were encouraging anyone with information about the incident to contact them immediately.
It is not uncommon for any accidents like this to be shrouded in a level of unknown. Accidents happen in the blink of an eye and there is often resulting confusion in the aftermath. This goes double for motorcycle accidents. Since many fatal motorcycle accidents occur because a driver in another car never saw the two-wheeled vehicle, there are often more questions than answers.
This scenario can add to the trauma that victims and their families must endure in the wake of a motorcycle accident. On top of severe injuries, mounting medical bills and lost wages, victims must also deal with the uncertainty of what caused the accident and who is responsible for the resulting expenses.
