One Badly Injured in Deadly Motorcycle Crash on Coors and Paseo Del Norte
ALBUQUERQUE, NM (August 19, 2021) – Sunday morning a motorcyclist sustained critical injuries after a collision with a truck in Albuquerque.
The collision took place at around 2:30 a.m. at the the intersection of Paseo del Norte and Coors, as stated by the report.
According to the police, a 2003 Toyota was heading north making a left turn when a southbound motorcyclist failed to stop at a red light and struck the side of the sedan.
According to officials, the rider was not wearing a helmet and suffered significant injuries. However, there has been no update on their current condition.
The investigation is still ongoing, and it’s unclear if the motorcyclist’s speed or intoxication had a role.
When driving, it is important to keep an eye out for motorcyclists. Check all your mirrors and blind spots for motorcycles before merging with traffic or changing lanes, especially at intersections. Also, allow more following distance when behind a motorcycle. This gives them more time to react or stop in case of an emergency. If you are riding a motorcycle, do not underestimate the bike’s speed. Use hand and turn signals when you change lane or turn. To increase visibility, wear brightly colored clothes and reflective tape. Create safer roads and save lives by abiding all traffic laws and observing safety precautions.
