Motorcycle accident kills North Carolina man in Wilmington

When operating any type of vehicle, drivers assume a reasonable duty of care for the safety of others on the road. While diligence and being watchful can prevent many accidents, sometimes a small careless error can result in tragic consequences. In recent news, a motorcycle accident took the life of 68-year-old North Carolina man. The accident occurred on the night of Friday, April 20, in Wilmington. The motorcycle accident occurred after the man turned left in front of a Port City Taxi.

The taxi was being driven by a 57-year-old man from Riegelwood. When the motorcyclist turned in front of him, the taxi hit the bike, causing the driver to be thrown to the roadway. The motorcycle driver was transported to the hospital but died at New Hanover Regional Medical Center the next day. There was no word on whether the taxi driver sustained any injuries in the crash.

The North Carolina motorcycle accident is still being investigated but preliminary results show that no contributing factors on the taxi driver's part existed to cause the accident. Regardless, a life has been lost.

Even though the taxi driver was likely not at fault in this incident, it is certainly no secret that many drivers on North Carolina roadways fail to look carefully for motorcyclists who may be sharing the road with them. Hopefully this devastating accident and others like it will encourage drivers across our state to make an extra effort to be vigilant and safe when driving.
