A woman in Nashville, Tennessee died on April 21 after battling injuries she sustained following a motorcycle accident that occurred on April 8. 55-year-old Jennifer Mosey was on Dickerson Pike when a Cadillac Escalade pulled out in front of her, causing her to lose control of her motorcycle and crash.
After police and medical personnel arrived to the crash scene, Mosey was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center where she later passed away. Neither the driver of the Cadillac nor Mosey are suspected of being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Police stated that the cause of the wreck was the Cadillac driver’s failure to yield to Mosey. The case remains under investigation and no charges have been filed.
Fatal motorcycle accidents can be avoided if drivers use caution. Drivers of passenger vehicles should not assume that motorcyclists are looking out for them; the reality is, motorcyclists pay attention to their driving habits just like drivers of passenger vehicles.
Motorcycles do not offer the same amount of protection as passenger vehicles, which have steel frames surrounding them, which make operators more susceptible to major accidents that can lead to broken limbs or traumatic brain injuries.
