In July 2008, an Ohio teenage girl was a passenger on a motorcycle that witnesses say was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic near Shadyside, Ohio. When a vehicle pulled in front of the bike, the driver was unable to avoid a collision, and both the driver and passenger were ejected in the motorcycle accident that resulted. A few weeks following the collision, the passenger died from her injuries.
In our preceding blog post (April 12), we informed readers of a recent accident in Massillon, a town about 50 miles south of Cleveland. Excessive speed was a primary factor in a car crash there that killed one occupant in a vehicle and left two others -- both ejected from the car -- lucky to be alive and with only minor injuries.
