Woman charged with manslaughter after striking motocyclists

Unfortunately, some of the greatest threats to motorcyclists are other drivers. This truth was demonstrated to heartbreaking lengths recently, when a woman who was allegedly under the influence of alcohol crossed into the wrong side of the road while driving, colliding with several motorcyclists. Several of them were injured, and, sadly, one was killed. The woman now faces manslaughter charges.

The woman who was driving the vehicle that struck the riders has a history dangerous driving, with several instances of driving while intoxicated already on her record in both Connecticut and New York. Authorities investigating the crash site found three wine bottles and a prescription bottle bearing her name. Records indicate that her blood alcohol level was documented at 0.09 on the night of the accident, which is just north of the legal limit to drive.

For the riders involved, it is not pretty scene. The accident claimed the life of one woman who is a mother of three children, leaving the father raise the children on his own. Another rider had to undergo an emergency amputation of his leg below the knee, due to irreparable damage done by the accident. It remains to be seen how the woman's insurance will address the accident, and it may take some time for the victims to receive fair compensation for their losses.

If you have been injured in an accident, you deserve to have your case evaluated by an experienced attorney who can help you fight for justice for your injuries. With proper legal guidance, you can rest assured that your rights will remain protected while you explore your options for and fair compensation.
