As Virginia Beach personal injury attorneys who often work with injured bikers, we know that left hand turn accidents involving a motorcycle are all too common in Virginia. One recent example is a two-vehicle motorcycle accident in Campbell County.
The accident occurred mid-afternoon at the intersection of Timberlake Road and Enterprise Drive. According to police reports, the driver of the motorcycle, 20-year-old Jacob Warrender of Lynchburg, slammed into the passenger side of a Pontiac sedan. The driver of the car was traveling east on Timberlake when she attempted a left hand turn onto Enterprise Drive. At this point the motorcycle, traveling westbound, struck the turning car.
Though he was wearing a helmet, Mr. Warrender was seriously injured during the crash. He sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken by medical helicopter to Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, VA.
The car involved in the accident was driven by 47-year-old Deborah Campbell. Reports state that Ms. Campbell was treated for minor injuries and released at the scene. Ms. Campbell was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
