Motorcycle accident results in the death of local athlete

Communities across the country rally around local athletes. People will follow their careers from high school through college and into the professional leagues if they are able to make it that far. Therefore, when these promising young athletes' lives are cut short, it may be the entire community that mourns their passing rather than just the close friends and family. A community in Georgia is currently mourning the death of a local star who was killed in a motorcycle accident

The young man who was killed was a recent high school graduate and former star athlete. He had played for both his high school football and basketball teams. It was revealed that he had even received multiple football scholarship offers from colleges. 

He had been riding his motorcycle on the afternoon of Saturday, July 14, when he was struck by a car. When authorities arrived, they pronounced the young man dead at the scene. The driver of the car was not injured. Georgia State Patrol is still investigating the crash, but it is suspected that charges will be filed. 

Motorcycles can be difficult to see on the roadways, which is why drivers must often be more cautious during times when motorcyclists are more likely to be on the roads. Unfortunately, when a motorcycle accident does occur, the results can be devastating due to the lack of protection that a motorcyclist has in comparison to the driver of a car. Those who have suffered injuries or whose loved ones have been killed in an accident could benefit from speaking with an attorney. Victims or their families may be entitled to compensation for medical costs, property damages or funeral costs.
