All Arkansas drivers have a responsibility to safeguard their passengers. This is especially important for motorcycle drivers since their passengers are particularly vulnerable since they are exposed instead of in the cab of a vehicle. Riders and passengers often suffer more serious injuries and die more often in a motorcycle accident than people in other vehicles.
The Arkansas State Police were recently called to the scene of an accident on U.S. 67 involving a motorcycle. The crash occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m. on a Friday night. Reports indicate that the motorcycle was heading south on the highway, when its driver lost control on a curve. The motorcycle then left the roadway and slammed into a fence.
