Posted on May 05, 2010
A Staten Island motorcycle accident leaves a biker injured after a car cuts off the motorcyclist. The incident took place at approximately 7:00 AM on Thursday morning, April 29, 2010, at the intersection of Innis Street and St. Joseph’s Avenue.
According to reports, the motorcyclist was making a left turn onto St. Joseph’s Avenue near Port Richmond High School, when the motorcycle was cut off by another vehicle. A witness reported that the car was unable to avoid the bike.
Rescue crews arrived on the scene and treated the biker for injuries sustained in the accident. It was unclear as to whether the motorcyclist was taken to the hospital or what type of injuries the biker sustained. It was also unclear if the driver of the car was injured in the collision.
“I really don’t think cars give any leeway to motorcycles,” one witness said. “I don’t think they give motorcycles the right of way. I gave up riding a motorcycle in the city a long time ago.”
The Staten Island motorcycle accident is still under investigation by local authorities. There was no indication as to who was at fault.
Accidents involving motorcycles can be serious. We wish all the victims a speedy recovery.
