Car strikes motorcycle in serious South Parker Road accident, Aurora, Colorado.


With summer comes the fun.  With fun comes motorcycles.  At least fun for some.



Unfortunately, for two motorists, last night was a tough one.  Apparently, a motorcycle was headed North bound on Parker Road when it was hit by a passenger car near Illiff Avenue, in Aurora, Colorado.  We have video of the crash scene.


We urge you to remember, when it comes to cars and motorcycles, the cars win just about every time.  The losers are the bike rider and the car driver.  If the biker makes it through he will likely suffer serious injury.  No matter his fate, the driver of the vehicle may have a nightmare to deal with for the rest of his or her life!


If you want some help with defensive driving, or you have a young one who throws caution to the wind in an infallible belief what happens bad to others will never happen to him, there is the National Traffic Safety Institute.  Better to call them before the court requires defensive driving classes rather than after!


According to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, over half of motor vehicle fatalities involve motorcycle-car crashes.  Most of the time, says the Foundation, the fault likes with the vehicle driver.


Forget the ego, be especially careful, some of these bike guys steal the road, others are in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Whatever the cause, a collision is the start of a nightmare for rider and driver and their families!


We do not know whether there was a fatality in this case.  The Aurora Police closed Northbound Parker Road.  I spoke to the party who had hit the biker and she was very shaken up.  He few words were, “I hope he is o.k.” pointing to the debris field.



Drive safely this summer!  And stay around awhile!
