Police are investigating a motorcycle accident in Lancaster County, in the West Hempfield Township, that involved two motorcycles and two passenger vehicles - a sedan and an SUV. Initial reports at the scene were that the two motorcyclists were struck by the sedan, causing them to crash, then the SUV was unable to avoid one of the riders and the sedan and struck them both.
One motorcyclist, from Thomasville (York County) was pronounced dead at the scene, the other rider, from Seven Valleys, was taken to Lancaster hospital for critical life-threatening injuries according to police. The second rider passed away on Tuesday, from the injuries he sustained in the accident.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are typically more serious, as the rider is afforded much less protection in a crash and is basically exposed. Motorcycle accident injuries can be catastrophic, as seen in the story above, and can also be debilitating. You life can change in an instant after a motorcycle accident, leading you to search for answers about how you will get by if you cannot work because of the injuries sustained.
