Yet another Sacramento resident has died as a result of a motorcycle accident. In late September, 54-year-old Christopher Wells was riding his Harley on the Capital City Freeway when suddenly, everything went wrong. Wells was in the process of changing lanes when another driver began doing the same thing. Responding to the other driver, Wells applied his brakes, only to lose control of his motorcycle. The California Highway Patrol said Wells was wearing a helmet and abiding by the speed limit at the time of the collision. Less than two weeks later, Wells passed away as a result of the serious injuries he sustained in that late September accident.
While we may never know all of the facts that contributed to the Wells accident, we can still benefit from simply acknowledging that riding a motorcycle can be a very dangerous activity. Fortunately, recent California statistics indicate that many cyclists are beginning to exercise greater caution. The year 2009 is the first one since 1998 to show an actual decline in motorcycle fatalities. This abrupt change may make you wonder which safety precautions are keeping our cyclists safer.
