Kingston, New York, motorcycle accident sends biker to hospital

Late last week, a motorcycle accident south of Albany has left the motorcyclist in serious condition. Though Kingston police are still investigating the accident, it is obvious that the car-motorcycle collision has left the biker with traumatic injuries, highlighting the fact that motorcyclists are at a much higher risk of injury than other motorists in an accident.

The motorcyclist was originally taken to St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie by an air ambulance. It appears, however, that the man's injuries were so severe that he needed to be transferred to Albany Medical Center shortly thereafter. Though it is unknown how severely injured the biker is or what his injuries consist of, the initial reports indicate that the man was in a "very serious condition."

The accident happened in the early evening, shortly after 9:30 p.m. at an intersection in Kingston. As more information about the accident comes to light, the motorcyclist may find himself with enough evidence to file a lawsuit against the man or woman driving the vehicle that hit him.

Motorcyclists should be able to expect that they will receive the same kind of protection that any other motorist on the roads of Albany will receive. But, unfortunately, they often don't. Many drivers in and around upstate New York don't pay sufficient attention to motorcycles on the road, claiming they couldn't see bikers when they him them. This is an unacceptable excuse, as all motorists should be focused on driving safely on the road, regardless of with whom they are sharing it.
