Motorcycle accidents raise concern
Placeholder Image
Local residents and motorcycle safety activists Randy and Rhonda Williams are concerned about the number of motorcycle accidents in Warren County, particularly in the past year.“That’s because we know the state as a whole has enjoyed more than a 50 percent reduction in motorcycle accidents and fatalities,” Rhonda said. “It just doesn’t seem like Warren County drivers are getting the same message at the same pace as the rest of the state.”There have been nine motorcycle accidents in Warren County in the past 15 months, six fatal and three with serious injuries. The most recent was last week when Jacky Chisam was airlifted after his motorcycle was hit by a Jeep on Main Street.One statistic is that most of the riders involved in these accidents are from 30 to 60 years of age, which Rhonda says is typical.
