The family of a man who was killed in his home this past year, is having to deal with another tragedy after the man’s nephew was killed in a motorcycle accident on the way to the deceased man’s memorial fundraiser. Police report that the man was riding a motorcycle on N.C. Highway 55 when he was rear-ended by a Jeep.
While the tragedy occurred that morning, the family still got together for the memorial service, which was to be a motorcycle ride in his memory. About eighty riders participated in the ride; however, unfortunately they also had to pay tribute to the nephew as well.
This terrible tragedy unfortunately resulted in the death of two people in unrelated accidents. Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the deceased in these situations. If you or a loved one has been involved in a personal injury as a result of riding in a motorcycle, automobile, or truck, call the law offices of Reeves, Aiken & Hightower, LLP.
We have motorcyclists in our office, and we understand the inherent dangers of riding. However, much of the time, when there has been an accident involving a motorcycle, it is not the fault of the rider. The problem is, that the rider, because they have no protection, are the ones who suffer the bulk of the injuries.
