The Denver Post reports on the tragic death of a Colorado motorcyclist in Coal Creek Canyon. The 35-year-old man, who was riding on Colorado highway 72 northwest of Denver, was killed at the scene of an accident that occurred on an S-bend while taking a ride on a Sunday morning. The man, whose name has not been released because his family has not yet been notified of the crash, was riding a Yamaha sport bike with a helmet, but suffered fatal injuries nevertheless. Troopers from the Colorado State Patrol are investigating the cause of the accident, which they believe was related to excessive speed.

Many people love the sense of fun and freedom that motorcycles offer over cars and trucks. Unfortunately, the inherent risk is much greater in a motorcycle than in a car or truck. Taking into account total vehicle miles driven in the United States, motorcyclists are far more likely to be involved in a fatal accident. And with the lack of structural protection offered by motorcycles, many non-fatal crashes result in far more serious injuries than someone in a car would suffer in a similar crash. For these reasons, it is vital that everyone on the road, whether driving a car or truck, or riding a motorcycle, be well aware of the traffic around them, and drive safely at all times.
