Tragic Crash Kills Motorcyclist on Bryan Woods Road in Savannah, Georgia (GA)

August 30, 2020

SAVANNAH, GA- writes that one person was killed this week in a wreck that involved three vehicles. The incident occurred at the intersection of Highway 80 and Bryan Woods Road. The victim was operating a motorcycle westbound on the Highway when he collided with the rear of another vehicle. The motorcycle slid onto its side and then collided with an additional vehicle. The victim died at the crash scene.*

Motorcycles are not as safe as enclosed vehicles. Of course, the fact that those traveling on two wheels lack the outer shell provided by cars is one of the more obvious reasons that motorcyclists account for a disproportionately high number of crash-related fatalities. However, there are a multitude of other causes for the fact that motorcyclists are at risk on the road. For instance, they lack the stability provided by vehicles resting on four wheels, which means they are more likely to be in a wreck. 

One of the main reasons that motorcyclists are in danger is other drivers. Because of their smaller size, motorists often overlook them leading to tragic wrecks. 

In 2018, the number of people killed in motorcycle collisions declined by five percent. Despite that decrease, the total number of deaths was still close to 5,000. The risks of dying in a crash are 28 times as high for people on motorcycles as they are for those who are in cars. 

Wearing a helmet is a good way to cut down on the risks posed by riding a motorcycle. Another way to reduce risks is to wear bright clothes that make it easier for other drivers to see motorcyclists. 

Motorcycling enthusiasts warn riders that it is best to be on the lookout for drivers who are possibly about to cut into their path. While the onus is on the driver to share the road, the consequences often fall on the motorcyclist.
