Man Passes Away in Salt Lake Motorcycle Accident

posted April 16, 2012 | by

Kenneth Wayne Hemingway passed away in a motorcycle accident while riding on I-15 on Sunday, April 15, 2012. According to KSL News, 56-year-old Ken Hemingway was heading south on his motorcycle when he lost control and swerved to the right, hitting into a concrete barrier near 1000 South. He was thrown from his bike and landed about 100 feet away from point of impact. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say that speed may have been a factor in this motorcycle accident.


I offer my sincere condolences to the family of this man.

Those that ride motorcycles can be very vulnerable to injury and possible death when involved in an accident. Motorcyclists need to remain alert and cautious when traveling, especially at highway speeds. In any contest between another vehicle and a stationary object, the motorcycle — and its rider — will come out on the losing end.

In this case, though, I wonder if there was something that caused him to swerve into a stationary object. Was he cut off by another car? Did the rider have a health condition? Was there a mechanical failure on the motorcycle? In my mind, there are some unanswered questions that could help explain why this motorcycle accident happened in the first place.

“I am very pleased with the results that Kramer Law Group got for me. The insurance company refused to work with me even though their customer hit my car. That is until I contacted Kramer Law Group, then it was a different story. The insurance car admitted 100% fault, paid for the repairs on my car to my complete satisfaction, and I got a settlement.”
