Recent Motorcycle Accident Theme

Safety experts see common theme in recent motorcycle accidents
By: Associated Press

"LACONIA, N.H. --It's just a narrow yellow line, but crossing it has proved deadly for motorcycle riders during this year's Bike Week.

Police say bikers crossing the center line into oncoming traffic contributed to six of the nine deaths over the past week and a number of other serious accidents.

"People are crossing over that center line on corners and colliding head-on," said Peter Thomson, coordinator of the New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency.

That was certainly the case in Stoddard on June 10, when a rider crossed the line and collided with a Jeep Cherokee that lost control and rolled over into several other bikers. Three motorcyclists died.

This past Friday, a rider caught his foot peg on the pavement while turning and slid into the path of five other bikes. That rider died and four other bikers were injured, one seriously.

The nine deaths so far this year during Bike Week "are approaching the high side" Thomson said."
