Driver Facing Charges After Tragic Motorcycle Crash in Greenville County, South Carolina (SC)

June 16, 2020

GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC - writes that a woman is now facing charges following a tragic collision that killed a motorcyclist in Greenville County this week. The victim was identified as a 53-year-old man from Simpsonville. The incident took place in the late evening on North East Main Street. The motorcyclist was planning to make a left turn at the intersection with Springdale Drive. When the victim slowed down, the driver behind him collided with the rear of his motorcycle.*

The driver, identified as a 22-yer-old woman, was operating a 2017 Nissan Sentra at the time of the crash. The impact caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from his bike. He was declared dead a short while later. 

The driver is now facing charges for driving too fast for road conditions.

Speeding motorists are involved in about one out of three deadly crashes in the United States. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) writes that in some situations, driving too fast may not be a matter of violating the speed limit, but rather of driving too fast for the conditions of the roadway. If the weather is bad, the lighting is poor, or the road is not in good condition, drivers should consider slowing down to below the speed limit. 

When a driver speeds, they not only put themselves and people in their vehicle at risk, but they endanger everyone on and near the road. When a driver is traveling at higher speeds, there is a greater risk of that person losing control of their car, or of them being unable to stop in time in an emergency. The consequences of a crash increase when cars are traveling faster as well.
