Car driver charged with improper turn after hitting a motorcycle driver.

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

A motorcycle driver was hit by a car in an accident in Waterloo at Ellis and Union Street.  The driver of the car was charged by Waterloo Regional Police with making an unsafe turn.  Fire and ambulance services also responded to the Waterloo accident scene. It is very important that car drivers take their time and be very cautious when making a turn, especially left hand turns.  Car drivers need to be aware of any pedestrians or bicyclists that may come across their path when making their turn.  Also, car drivers need to be aware of oncoming vehicles.  Cars and trucks are more visible than motorcycles.  It can be difficult at times to see a single headlight from a motorcycle driver.  That is why car drivers need to be patient and ensure that they have a good view of oncoming traffic and the area that they are turning into to ensure that the path is clear to safely make the turn.
