A motorcyclist was traveling on New Kings Road in Jacksonville, Florida, when a Honda Civic attempted to make a left turn across the motorcycle’s path of travel caused a serious collision.
Left turns across oncoming traffic represent the second most common type of car accident we see as Jacksonville car accident lawyers, the most common being rear-end collisions. Drivers turning left must yeild to oncoming traffic. Often such drivers mistake the speed of oncoming cars and the length of time it takes them to accelerate from a stop to cross the oncoming lanes. Also, motorcycles can be more difficult to see.
Left turn auto collisions typically result in a “T-bone” collsion with serious personal injuries, and, at times, fatal accidents.
