In Westminster, South Carolina, a moped crash with another vehicle caused a fatality. Around 6:41 am, the collision occurred when a vehicle struck a moped on Westminster Highway near Plant Road. The 65-year-old rider succumbed to his fatal injuries at the scene of the moped crash.
Mopeds contain little to no safety features, so riders are vulnerable in motor vehicle accidents. When a larger vehicle hits a moped, the crash could cause a variety of personal injuries and possible fatalities. In some cases, debilitating injuries could lead to lifelong trauma, and the inability to earn a proper living.
