Motorcycle Accident leaves rider in critical condition
A motorcycle rider suffered severe personal injury Tuesday morning in a crash under investigation by the Miami-Dade Police Department. The accident, which left the motorcycle rider in critical condition, occurred in the vicinity of 64th Avenue and SW 107th Avenue. Apparently, the motorcycle was struck by a Toyota truck and was left mangled in the intersection of the above mentioned avenues.
Controversy over the proper protection and gear for motorcycle riders looms as motorcycle riders remain the most at risk of suffering serious to fatal injuries after an accident. Many motorcycle riders do not wear helmets and many do not wear protective clothing, such as elbow and knee protection. Many motorcycle riders are also spotted wearing flip flops, which do not help safe guard against suffering severe foot injuries or help with proper footing and handling.
