Motorcycle Rider Seriously Injured In Rochester Hit-And-Run Collision By Upper Falls Boulevard and Hudson Avenue

Man Injured In Rochester Hit-And-Run Motorcycle Accident

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK (September 3, 2023) – A motorcycle rider was injured in a Rochester hit-and-run car accident by Upper Falls Boulevard and Hudson Avenue.

Rochester officials are saying that the accident took place on Monday evening. A motorcycle was crossing the intersection when they were hit by a vehicle that ran a red light.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victim. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The driver that caused the collision fled the scene.

Liability For Rochester Hit-And-Run Car Accidents

Motorcycles have a naturally small profile and their riders lack the protection of enclosed vehicles. According to the Insurance Information Institute, “Motorcycles are by their nature far less crashworthy than closed vehicles. They are also less visible to other drivers and pedestrians and less stable than four-wheel vehicles.” There are a number of steps that drivers can take in order to avoid hitting motorcyclists.

  • Drivers should check their blind spots before making turns.
  • Drivers should always follow motorcyclists at a safe distance.
  • Drivers should reduce their speed at night and during periods of inclement weather.

The vast majority of hit-and-run collisions are totally preventable. They tend to involve drivers that were either speeding, distracted or following the lead vehicle too closely. Drivers that flee the scene of car accidents may face criminal and civil liability for their actions. Any person that is injured due to the negligence of another driver may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
