Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Discuss Wrong-way Collision On Interstate

A car that careened into oncoming traffic allegedly caused a fatal accident on Interstate 540 on Monday, August 3, at about 4:30 p.m., according to WNCN.

Vehicle Crosses Median

A spokesman for the North Carolina Highway Patrol says that a silver 2003 Honda was westbound when it swerved into the median, right through a guard wire and into oncoming traffic. There, it struck a 2012 motorcycle operated by 44-year-old Raleigh man. The motorcyclist came off his bike, and he died at the scene, according to the highway patrol spokesman.

Reason For Crash Unknown

Only one eastbound lane of I-540 remained open during a two-hour period immediately following the accident. Troopers did not know why the car travelled into the median and into oncoming traffic. Neither alcohol or speed are factors in the fatal wreck, according to investigators. Once a collision investigation occurs, troopers will speak with prosecutors in the Wake County D.A.’s office.

Although the investigation into this fatal motorcycle accident is in its earliest stages, victims of crashes often seek compensation for their injuries. When a person dies, survivors often seek compensation for various losses, including loss of companionship, pain-and-suffering and burial expenses. Settlements are often reached between the parties without a trial.
