The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has just released that one person was pronounced dead in a motorcycle/car collision this past Thursday night on Monroe Road.
The driver of the vehicle and the motorcyclist were travelling on Monroe Road, near Dunn Avenue, when the 22-year-old motorcyclists collided with a Toyota Camry at the intersection of the two roads.
It was right past 9:00 p.m., when the deceased defendant sped through the aforementioned intersection. It was there that he essentially “T-boned” the side of the Camry, injuring the driver.
The motorcyclist was pronounced dead on scene at 9:33 pm., when the Charlotte Medics arrived.
The driver of the Camry was transported to Carolina’s Medical Center with only minor injuries, luckily.
The investigation thus far has yielded that speed was certainly a main factor in the crash. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Departments Major Crash Division Unity has not yet said, however, if alcohol was also a contributing matter.
This crash is still being currently investigated, and more details will then follow.
When you are a motorcyclist, it is important to understand that you may be exposed to more inherent dangers on the road. The major issue is that a motorcyclist is more exposed to dangers than vehicles because they do not have a protective structure around them. Further, it is more difficult to see riders.
