Man Killed In Sand Lake Motorcycle Accident on State Route 150

SAND LAKE, NEW YORK (August 11, 2023) – A motorcyclist has tragically died in a Sand Lake car accident on State Route 150, according to the NYSP.

Sand Lake officials are saying that the accident took place around 6:53 p.m. on Sunday. A vehicle entered into the roadway directly in front of a motorcyclist.

The motorcyclist was unable to avoid the crash and hit the vehicle. Paramedics were called to the scene in order to help the victim.

Sadly, the motorcyclist died due to the severity of their injuries.

Liability For Sand Lake Motorcycle Accidents

Thousands of motorcyclists are killed or seriously injured every year in motorcycle accidents. According to Forbes, “In 2020, a total of 82,528 motorcycle riders sustained injuries. A total of 468 injuries occurred per 100 million vehicle miles traveled over the course of that year.” There are many factors that could contribute to a motorcycle accident.

  • A driver may have made a dangerous left turn.
  • A driver may have abruptly pulled into a roadway.
  • A driver may have been distracted by their cellphone.

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting motorcyclists. If a driver makes an abrupt turn into the path of a motorcyclist, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. The family of any motorcyclist that died in a collision may be able to seek some measure of justice through a civil claim.
