Hamilton County residents were reminded again of the need for caution and attention on the roads when motorcycles are present.
A tragic accident resulted in the death of a Fishers couple who were killed at the intersection of 146th street and Gray Road. The motorcycle was traveling behind an SUV but changed lanes to travel through the intersection as the light turned yellow. A box truck turning north onto Gray road was unable to stop and the motorcycle hit the passenger door. The driver of the box truck was uninjured.
Police reports indicate that neither the driver nor passenger of the motorcycle was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
As we have reported in past blogs, motorcycle riders need to take special precautions to ensure their safety and the safety of their passengers. Motorcycle training is of utmost importance. Wearing a helmet is also critical to the safety of those on the roads.
