Sadly, a recent Pompano Beach traffic accident involving a Honda Accord and two Suzuki motorcycles claimed the lives of the riders and left the driver of the Accord seriously injured.
In 2012, automobile occupants were 26 times less likely to die in a traffic accident per vehicle mile traveled than motorcyclists, according to the Insurance Information Institute.
According to the Miami Herald, the incident took place on a Saturday night around 9 p.m. on Interstate 95 near Atlantic Boulevard. Leading up to the wreck, a 44-year-old woman was driving a Honda Accord southbound on I-95 when she lost control of her car and veered into the median.
When the Accord veered into the median, a 54-year-old motorcyclist riding a Suzuki motorcycle on I-95 veered left to avoid it, struck the median wall and was ejected from his bike as a result. The motorcyclist was taken to Broward Health North for treatment, where he later died.
Following the first motorcycle crash, the Accord rotated off the median wall and into the path of a second motorcyclist, who was also riding a Suzuki, leading to a collision between the two vehicles. The second motorcyclist died on the scene. The driver of the Accord was taken to the hospital, where she was listed in serious condition at the time of this report.
