Selma, AL - Local Man Dies in Motorcycle Crash on US-80

When it comes to motorcycle deaths, Alabama ranks as the tenth most deadly state in the United States. There 93 deaths reported in motorcycle crashes across the state in a recent year. Because motorcycles are less visible than vehicles and trucks and less stable while braking suddenly, motorcycle accidents frequently result in fatalities. Moreover, motorcycle riders are significantly less protected from accidents than occupants of enclosed cars. To put it simply, motorcycles are more exposed in the event of a crash. The most common cause of motorcycle accidents in Alabama is alcohol consumption. Nearly 88 percent of motorcycle-related fatalities in Alabama in a recent year—77 out of 93 total deaths—involved alcohol.
