Hampton Motorcycle Injury Lawyer Report : Moped Rider is Seriously Hurt in Hampton
As an experienced Hampton motorcycle injury lawyer, I report on far too many moped and scooter accidents on the fast-moving highways of Hampton, VA.
As recently as July, 2012, a motorcyclist was killed on Mercury Boulevard.
Just days ago a moped rider sustained serious injuries when he crashed his moped on King Street, WAVY.com reported.
The man from Hampton man was listed as being in a critical condition after the crash on the morning of November 19, 2012. So many moped and scooter drivers were being hurt and killed in Hampton the local police division pressed unsuccessfully for a change in the law to take them off busier highways.
At about 1:46 a.m. the man was traveling northbound on King Street when he lost control of his moped and crashed. Police responded to the scene and found him lying in the road, according to a press release from Hampton Police.
Police are investigating the cause of the accident.
Motorcyclists are the most vulnerable type of road user. They are 39 times more likely to die in a crash than other road users, according to statistics.
