Fatal Motorcycle Accident Leaves 3 Dead

A sanitation truck crashed into eight motorcycles yesterday afternoon in Arizona. At least three people died in the fatal motorcycle accident. Six others, including an off-duty fire captain, were injured.

The motorcycles, on a group ride, were stopped at a red light at the time of the accident. Several of them got crushed underneath the truck, which caught fire as a result of the collision. A couple on vacation had their rental SUV pushed into the fray, and it caught on fire as well. Fortunately, the couple was not injured in the accident.

Three cyclists and their bikes were pinned beneath the burning truck during the motorcycle accident. Medical choppers on the scene airlifted two of the injured motorcyclists to hospitals for treatment. The other injured victims were transported to local hospitals in an ambulance.

The highway was closed for several hours as police investigated the events of the motorcycle accident. They did not detect any signs that the truck driver was impaired.

If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. If you lost a loved one in an accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to receive compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
