Detroit, MI (June 2, 2023) – On Wednesday, May 31, a motorcyclist was hurt after being involved in a hit-and-run in Detroit.
At around 10:05 p.m., a 73-year-old Lennon man was riding a Harley Davidson Triglide on Interstate 75 near 8 Mile Road. The rider was headed northbound when he was hit by a black Dodge Durango that was attempting to exit the highway. The driver of the Durango initially pulled over but fled the scene.
The area was shut down for several hours, and the injured motorcyclist was provided medical aid. Authorities are currently looking for more information on the accident.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is in progress.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Michigan Motorcycle Accidents
In Michigan, the motorcycle fatality rate is 16.2 for every 100 million miles driven. This represents a considerable increase over the vehicle fatality rate of one per 100 million miles. Motorcycles only account for less than 0.3% of all registered vehicles, but they were involved in about 1% of all traffic accidents in Michigan in 2016. Every 4 hours and 2 minutes, a motorcyclist is hurt in a Michigan car accident, and these injuries are typically significantly more severe than those suffered by passengers in motor vehicles.
In the state of Michigan, it is critical to contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney as quickly as possible after a collision. We understand the joy and freedom of warm-weather riding in the state of Michigan, and there are unique challenges that many motorcycle riders face when out on the open road. A motorcyclist is much more exposed to the dangers of the road and is at greater risk of suffering serious injuries in the event of a collision.
