Riding a motorcycle can be a risky experience, a point that was driven home when six motorcyclists where involved in a nasty crash in Myrtle Beach.
When fire rescue arrived on the scene of the accident, they decided that the extent of all six bikers injuries were severe enough to warrant instant transport to area hospitals. At the time the accident took place, the bikers were riding south on Krome. The ride was cut short when they collided into a van that was hauling a trailer.
According to the van driver, he was forced to step down hard on his brake pedal when the car in front of him suddenly slowed. He also swerved to the left, which put him directly into the path f the oncoming motorcycles. One bike burst into flames when it struck the van.
Four of the six motorcyclists were identified as trauma alert patients when they were transferred to the nearest hospital. Two were sent to Jackson Memorial Ryder Trauma Center. The other two more seriously injured bikers were transferred to Kendall Regional Medical Center.
“There’s nothing like hearing about a bad motorcycle accident to really drive home the fact that they’re not the safest form of transportation,” said Joe and Martin, from Joe and Martin Firm in Myrtle Beach. “While motorcycles are a great deal of fun, they’re also dangerous. The data collected nationwide indicates that using a motorcycle to commute rather than a car puts you at a 26 greater times risk of getting into an accident, and most motorcycle accidents result in a hospital stay.”
