Regardless of who is at fault, a motorcyclist is more vulnerable to injury in a collision with a car than occupants of the other vehicle. This is due to the exposure that results from sitting on top of a vehicle rather than inside an enclosed space. A crash involving a motorcycle and two cars in a residential neighborhood of Waterbury, Connecticut, resulted in the motorcyclist's death following ejection from his vehicle. An investigation into the accident required authorities to close down North Main Street in the vicinity of the collision for some time thereafter. 

The driver of the first car reportedly drove onto the front lawn of a nearby home in order to avoid a collision with the 26-year-old male motorcyclist who reportedly crossed into the southbound lane. A second car, also traveling south, then collided with the motorcycle head-on. 

Ejected from his motorcycle by the force of impact, the motorcyclist sustained massive head injuries when he came to rest on a nearby front yard and died at the scene. There is no report as to whether or not he was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. It is also unclear whether the front yard where the motorcyclist landed is the same property where the first car came to rest.

Neither of the drivers of the cars involved in the crash sustained any injury. It is unclear whether either received any medical evaluation. The reason that the motorcycle allegedly strayed into the other lane is unclear, and an investigation is ongoing. 

The catastrophic results of a motor vehicle accident can affect those involved for years thereafter. It may be helpful for them to discuss the case with an attorney.
