New York State Police Investigating St James Electric Motorbike Collision on Middle Country Road

Teenager Injured In St James Electric Bicycle Accident

ST JAMES, NEW YORK (January 10, 20223) – A teenager on an electric motorbike was seriously injured in a St James car accident along Middle Country Road.

St James officials are saying that the incident took place on Friday afternoon. The driver of an Infiniti Qx6  was making a left turn when it struck a teenager on an electric motorbike.

Paramedics were called to the scene of the collision in order to help the victim. He was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital in serious condition.

A full investigation into the St James collision remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For St James Car Accidents

Left turns are among the most dangerous maneuvers that drivers can make. Pursuant to New York Vehicle Code § 1141, any driver intending to turn left must yield the right of way to any vehicle traveling from the opposite direction that is close enough so as to pose a hazard. If a driver makes an abrupt left turn in front of another vehicle prior to a collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Victims of car accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal cord injuries

The vast majority of bicycle accidents are preventable. They often involve drivers that are either distracted or not paying enough attention to the road. It can be hard for accident victims to know what to do after any collision. But it is important for them to understand that they do have rights. Any person that is injured in a car accident may have legal recourse through a civil claim.
