A motorcyclist was fatally injured on Sunday afternoon. The accident occurred around 3:45 pm in the intersection of Lindbergh Boulevard and 63rd Street in Philadelphia. When the accident took place, the 40-year-old man was allegedly speeding, and ran a red light. While crossing the intersection, a 63-year-old cab driver hit the man and his motorcycle with his vehicle. The rider was rushed to Presbyterian Hospital where he succumbed to his fatal injuries.
Due to warmer temperatures and milder weather, the amount of motorcycle fatalities increases. Motorcycles do not contain as many safety features as a vehicle like a car or truck, so motorcyclists are more vulnerable to the outside elements as well as the possibility of sustaining personal injuries or even fatalities. If the motorcyclist survives the accident, they may experience a loss of income or face mental trauma.
