Seriously folks, accidents involving motorcycles are starting to hit epidemic proportions. Another motorcycle accident last night left an area motorcylist with injuries.
It happened around 7:00 last night when the truck driver, headed westbound on West Monroe Road, made a left turn onto Bernhill Road and struck the motorcycle that was heading east on Monroe. The truck driver told authorities the sun was in his eyes and he didn’t see the motorcycle approaching when he attempted to turn.
The motorcyclist is reported to have compound fractures and serious injuries. Sheriff’s deputies said the truck driver will not be charged.
