You don't have to be a seasoned motorcycle rider to realize how vulnerable drivers and passengers of these vehicles are when it comes to traffic accidents. Even bikers who wear helmets are in danger of suffering serious injuries in the event they collide with a car or truck. When an accident happens, motorcyclists may need to rely on the driver of the other vehicle involved to call for medical assistance or to provide an account of the accident to authorities. If the other driver chooses to leave the scene instead. the motorcyclist may have a tougher time recovering -- both physically and financially.
Officials from the Florida Highway Patrol say they are still looking for the driver of a pickup truck that collided with a motorcycle last month in Molino. The investigation so far has only turned up dead ends, and police may be running out of options.
