One Killed in Motorcycle Accident on General DeGaulle Drive in New Orleans, Louisiana


NEW ORLEANS, LA — One person has died after a serious motorcycle accident that happened in New Orleans, Louisiana on Wednesday, June 18th, 2014, according to a report from NOLA.

Investigators from the New Orleans Police say that they have reason to believe one man died when the Buell motorcycle he was driving collided with a Nissan Altima while driving on General DeGaulle Drive near the intersection with Wall Boulevard around 1:30 in the afternoon.

Scene of the Accident

 

 

The driver of the motorcycle was taken by paramedics to a hospital where he died a short time later. The driver of the Nissan sustained unspecified injuries in the accident and remains in stable condition.

The investigation is being handled by officials from the The Orleans Parish Coroner’s office.

Commentary:

While the report is fuzzy on all the details in the accident, this is one case where the wreckage and the scene of the accident could tell us quite a bit about what happened. If there was any kind of problem within the mechanics of the vehicle, all it would take is a close inspection to tell where the problem was, and if it was in any way related to the accident. If the brakes locked, or the throttle stuck, the vehicle manufacturer could be liable, but nobody will no for sure until the evidence is inspected.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
