Most drivers don't give two thoughts about making a U-turn. They simply look for cars, and then proceed. While those actions are common, motorists need to be on the lookout for motorcycles. They're a lot smaller, and therefore less likely to be seen.
Christopher Sly, Harrisville, was seriously injured when his motorcycle collided with a Dodge Durango attempting to make a U-turn.
Sly was on his motorcycle driving east on 1800 North, close to 1900 West. The Durango was also heading east. The Durango cut off Sly, while trying to make a U-turn, this caused the motorcycle to T-bone the Durango. No skid marks were found at the site of the accident, which indicates Sly was going full-speed when the accident occurred.
Because of the collusion, Sly was thrown over the Durango. As a result he suffered compound fractures to both legs, and head injuries from colliding with the car's windshield. The man driving the Durango was unscathed and was simply cited for an improper U-turn.
