Erie, PA – A three vehicle crash, involving 2 cars and a motorcycle, occurred near the intersection of East 14th Street and Parade Street just before midnight on Wednesday, April 6, 2022.
According to Erie Police, two people, including the motorcyclist, were taken to the hospital in critical condition. The investigation into this accident is ongoing.
A recent study found that drivers of cars and trucks, not motorcyclists, are the cause of most motorcycle accidents involving more than just the bike. Anyone involved in a motorcycle accident should have their investigative team evaluate all aspects surrounding the collision. This includes reviewing:
- Blind spots on the vehicle
- Video from office building on this corner
- All Eyewitness accounts of the accident
- Police accident report
- Any testing of the driver for drugs and alcohol
- Any history of driver with drugs and alcohol
- Phone and texting records of the driver
- Accident history on this road
- Evaluation if road is striped per code
- Inspection of road conditions and signage
Car drivers always have a duty to always exercise safety precautions to avoid hitting motorcyclists.
