A motorcyclist sustained fatal injuries after rear-ending a car in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The fatal motorcycle accident occurred around 3:17 pm on Thursday afternoon when a 61-year-old motorcyclist from Landrum, South Carolina rear-ended a car that was towing a boat on South Carolina Highway 11 near Chesnee, South Carolina. Due to the impact upon rear-ending the sedan, the motorcyclist was ejected from his bike and incurred serious head injuries. He was taken to the Spartanburg Medical Center where he succumbed to his fatal injuries. Two passengers in the car escaped the motor vehicle accident unscathed.
Even the most experienced motorcyclists may incur a range of personal injuries and potential fatalities when they engage in an accident with another vehicle. Since motorcycles contain less safety features than enclosed vehicles, motorcyclists are vulnerable in a crash with any size car or truck. If a motorcyclist survives a serious accident, the recovery time may be challenging and impact their finances and quality of life.
