A young man from Fall River, Massachusetts, was killed yesterday following a motorcycle crash in Dartmouth, Massachusetts at the intersection of Milton and Sharp streets. Thirty-two-year-old Stephen Adams and his 32-year-old female passenger were transported to Rhode Island Hospital, both in critical condition after the crash. Adams died shortly after. Although the cause of the crash has not been determined, two cars were found in the road by officers; the drivers and passengers apparently were uninjured.
Less than a month ago, we commented on another serious crash between a motorcycle and a car in Allston. There, we wrote that Massachusetts requires all motorcyclists to wear helmets (unlike some states) and noted that national rates of wearing helmets have increased. We currently have no reason to believe the man and his passenger in the present case were not wearing helmets.
With more motorcyclists on the road in the upcoming warmer months, we urge bikers and car drivers to use even greater care on the roads. If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash, or a loved one has been killed in a motorcycle crash, contact a skilled Boston and Cambridge motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible to determine your potential for recovery in a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death suit.
