Most of the time, when an automobile and a motorcycle are involved in a fatal accident, it is the motorcyclist who is killed. Sometimes, though, a motorist is killed by the dangerous actions of a motorcyclist, as was the case for a Miamitown, Ohio woman recently. The woman was turning left into her driveway off Ohio Route 128, when a motorcyclist crashed into her door, killing her. The motorcyclist was thrown off the bike, but sustained only minor injuries, despite the fact that he was not wearing a helmet.
The man responsible for the motorcycle accident is currently being held on $250,000 bond to face charges of aggravated vehicular homicide. Based on evidence at the crash scene, sheriff’s deputies say the man was riding his bike at nearly 100 miles an hour at the time of the accident. According to deputies, alcohol was probably a factor in the accident. According to eyewitness reports, the motorcyclist was performing stunts on his motorcycle just before the accident occurred.
