Fatal accident between a motorcycle and car

October 08, 2015, Kitchener, Ontario

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

The Waterloo Region Record reported on a fatal motorcycle and car accident that occurred on October 8, 2015.  The collision occurred near the intersection of Erb Street and Westmount Road.  The motorcycle rider was westbound on Erb Street when a vehicle pulled out from Dietz Avenue.  The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

It is so important that an operator of a motor vehicle take their time before proceeding into an intersection.  Whether one intends to driver straight through the intersection, or turn left or right, after stopping at a stop sign for example, you need to make sure that the path to proceed is absolutely clear.  While looking for other cars or trucks, a driver needs to be extra cautious for less obvious users of the roadway like a motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian.  Check multiple times to ensure that the path is clear. Check once, and then check again before proceeding.  If you need, develop a mental checklist to ensure you make sure the path is clear from all angles.
