Car accidentHartford, CT- Lacking the same protections as someone driving a car or truck, motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to be killed in a traffic accident according to federal safety advocates. The deadly nature of motorcycle collisions is demonstrated in a recent Hartford-area collision that left one man dead and another victim suffering serious injuries.
Police in Meriden report that on Sunday, July 27th around 12:17 a.m. a man riding his motorcycle on the Berlin Parkway when he attempted to make U-turn.

The motorcyclist survived the initial impact, but was pronounced dead later that morning. Family and friends went to the site of his crash and began building a small roadside memorial.
The woman driving the car that was struck suffered a serious injury that required surgery and remains in guarded condition, the Record-Journal reported.
