It is estimated that nine percent of annual traffic fatalities in Kentucky involve commercial vehicles. This would add up to more than 90 deaths each year.
In the blink of an eye, a promising young person’s future can be changed forever by a car accident. Many people in their teens and early 20s have been permanently disabled by a negligent driver’s actions. In the worst cases, the victim is taken decades before his or her time.
One of the rules of safe driving in Kentucky is to look out for traffic before making a turn. When a careless driver turns onto a busy street without first making reasonably sure that it is safe to do so, he or she may cause a serious accident. If a motorcycle is involved, there is unfortunately a good chance the rider gets badly injured, possibly even killed.
