Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Discuss Motorcycle Struck During Police Chase

Firefighters Responding To Motorcycle Accident Stock Photo

Kernersville police say that an allegedly stolen truck collided with a motorcycle on East Mountain Street during a police chase on Saturday, June 6.

Police Chase Truck

According to the police department, officers were responding to a report of a stolen vehicle when they spotted it. When they attempted to stop the vehicle, the suspect allegedly increased speed before entering the center turn lane. There, the vehicle struck a Harley Davidson motorcycle that was carrying two individuals at the time. The chase turned into a hit-and-run as the suspect fled.

Man Arrested

Police officers used stop sticks to deflate the tires of the stolen truck. Officers then took the man into custody. A judge set bond at $35,000, and authorities detained the man at the Forsyth County Detention Center. Charges are pending, according to the authorities. Fox8 reports that the male and female that were on the motorcycle required transport to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. Both live in Kernersville.

Although the investigation into this accident is only in its preliminary stages, incidents involving stolen vehicles and/or high-speed chases potentially raise complex liability questions. An attorney focused on relevant areas of personal injury law is often in a position to properly evaluate such a case. State law does allow victims of negligent conduct on North Carolina’s roadways to pursue compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and pain-and-suffering.
