A local man was injured in a motorcycle crash on April 12. According to a report released by Tallahassee police, the crash occurred at Paul Russell Road and Adams Street. The motorcycle was involved in a collision with a vehicle, and the driver of the motorcycle was taken to a local hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the wreck.
There were few details released after the accident, but the story serves as a reminder that both motorcycle riders and vehicle drivers need to be aware of one another. As the weather steadies itself, more bikes will be out on the road, sharing space with cars and trucks. It is the responsibility of everyone on the road to look out for one another, but it is especially important for drivers to keep their eyes open for motorcycles.
While you are driving, keep your eyes focused on the road. Scan the area around your car often, and keep your radio turned down to a level that allows you to hear what is happening outside of your vehicle. Always turn your head to look in the next lane before you merge instead of relying on your mirrors. If you see a motorcycle driver operating their bike recklessly, move out of the way if possible and phone emergency services.
