Washington State Patrol reported a three-motorcycle crash while attempting to pass a semi-truck. The collisions occurred on State Route 17 when three friends riding motorcycles were attempting to pass a semi-truck. One motorcycle hit another which then caused the third motorcyclist to collide with them. Two of the three motorcyclists were taken to nearby hospitals for evaluation of serious injuries. All three riders were reportedly wearing helmets at the time of the crash. The motorcycle accident closed part of the highway for about an hour as crews worked to clear the wreckage. The first motorcyclist to hit the other was cited for driving too closely.
Riding Too Close on a Motorcycle
In most motorcycle accidents the driver of the semi-truck or car is to blame for following too closely. However, it is important to remember that a motorcyclist can also be found at fault for following too closely. A new study has found that one of the most common causes for motorcycle crashes is riders running into the rear of vehicles because they are following too close. Motorcyclists often complain about being tailgated by vehicles, but there is also a tendency for riders to follow vehicles too closely.
