One Dead, One Seriously Injured in Tucson Motorcycle Accident
Though many people who have years of experience behind the wheel do not overtly consider it, there are several timing intricacies and judgments that must be made with any driving maneuver in the presence of other vehicles. Unfortunately, when these maneuvers are made in the presence of motorcycles, many people simply do not see them. While it's too early to know specifically what occurred in a violent Tucson motorcycle accident that took place on Sunday, what is known is that one person was killed and another was seriously injured in the crash.
According to authorities, this fatal Tucson motorcycle accident happened on Sunday afternoon when 22-year-old Ryan Markham was driving his motorcycle in a southbound direction on Pantano Road between Wrightstown and Seneca Roads. Suddenly, another vehicle pulled out in front of him and Mr. Markham collided with the driver's side of that vehicle. He was tragically killed at the scene of the crash, and the driver of the car was seriously injured and rushed to a nearby hospital.
