Last week, the Clarksville Police Department issued safety tips for drivers and motorcyclists after recent fatal motorcycles accidents in the city. On Saturday, two more motorcycle accidents were reported within hours of each other in Montgomery County, and both caused riders to suffer serious injuries.
Per a report by WKRN.com, the first accident happened when a Pontiac Montana driven by a 73-year-old woman was headed south on Ft. Campbell Blvd. The woman attempted to make a left turn onto Ashbury Rd., but she didn’t see a motorcycle headed in her direction.
The 22-year-old motorcyclist collided with the front passenger door of the Pontiac, and he was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center via LifeFlight helicopter to receive treatment. He was recently reported to be in stable condition.
