Earlier this week in Hyattsville, Maryland, an accident between a motorcycle and a car resulted in the death of a seven-year-old pedestrian who was standing near the scene of the accident. According to one local news report, the accident occurred in the afternoon hours on the East-West highway, between Belcrest and Toledo Roads.
Evidently, the motorcyclist was heading west when an eastbound car attempted to make a turn in front of him. The motorcycle crashed into the side of the turning vehicle, and the rider was sent flying over the car. The motorcycle ricocheted off the car and was sent into a crowd, where it collided with four people.
All four of the people struck by the errant motorcycle were taken to the hospital with varying injuries. Three of the four pedestrians taken to the hospital are expected to recover from their injuries. However, one seven-year-old boy tragically passed away from the injuries he sustained in the accident. The driver of the motorcycle did not sustain life-threatening injuries.
