Dodge City, AL - Man Dies in Motorcycle Crash on AL-69

Although riding a motorcycle is a great pastime and hobby, it leaves you more exposed to the risks of the road. Too many people lose their lives in motorcycle crashes on American roadways. With 5,579 recorded deaths nationwide in 2020, motorbikes accounted for about 14 percent of all road fatalities. This is the greatest amount on record since 1975. In the case of a crash, motorcycle riders have a nearly 28 times greater risk of mortality as opposed to passengers in a car, and around 80 percent of motorbike incidents result in fatalities or serious injuries.
