Schuylkill Motorcyclist Fatally Injured in Crash Involving Excessive SpeedOn Monday afternoon, two motorcyclists crashed into a pickup truck, which caused a fatality and serious injuries. When the accident occurred around 3:10 pm in West Brunswick Township, Pennsylvania, the first motorcyclist, a 25-year-old man from Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania, and a second motorcyclist, a 30-year-old man from Auburn, Pennsylvania slammed into a truck that was making a left turn from Route 61 onto Cinema Boulevard. During the accident, the first motorcyclist was fatally injured, and the second motorcyclist sustained critical injuries while the pickup driver, a 19-year-old man from Cressona, Pennsylvania suffered only minor injuries. Police suspect that both motorcyclists were engaging in excessive speed.

Although riding motorcycles is a popular method of transportation during warmer weather, a high number of accidents accompany the popularity. Since motorcycles provide no protection from the elements, the types of injuries stemming from motorcycle accidents range from minor to life-threatening. When excessive speed factors into a collision, the severity of the crash could be catastrophic.
