Midvale Motorcycle Accident Leaves Man With Brain Injury

posted April 30, 2009 | by

A motorcyclist was hospitalized after slamming into a parked car in Midvale on April 29. The driver crashed into the back bumper of a parked car at 10pm near 900 West and 7700 South. Witnesses heard the crash and saw the motorcycle but didn’t see a driver, reports KSL news. “They came down to investigate, originally thought there was no one there, but looked under the car and saw the victim,” said Sgt Chad Egan of the Midvale Police Department.

Witnesses called 911 and just as emergency crews came the man regained consciousness. He was rushed to the hospital with serious head injuries. The man was not wearing a helmet but other details of the crash are under investigation. Police suspect alcohol was a factor but it is unknown if it actually was.

From the sound of this report, I don’t think this man will be able to find a Utah motorcycle accident attorney or lawyer to help him, since it sounds like the crash is his fault! In Utah, if you are 50 percent or more at fault, you don’t have a case.

I don’t know all of the details of this case, but I do know that when riding a motorcycle, wearing a helmet can be life saving. This man sustained severe head trauma that may have been lessened by use of a helmet. Although helmet use has risen, the U.S. Department of Transportation reports only 51 percent of motorcyclists wear a helmet. Motorcycle helmets reduce the likelihood of a crash fatality by 37 percent! People have many reasons not to wear a helmet, but really the risk is far too great. Use your head: Wear a helmet!
