As the weather gets warmer and warmer, motorcycle drivers venture out on the roads of Massachusetts. These drivers are particularly vulnerable to suffering serious and even catastrophic injuries, should they be involved in a collision with a car or truck.
Tragedy struck twice in a week on the roads of Massachusetts when a 58-year-old man from Roxbury was killed after driving in the wrong direction. The car accident occurred near the entrance of the O'Neill Tunnel in Boston. It was the second fatal car crash involving a vehicle being driven the wrong direction in less than a week.
A horrific head-on collision recently occurred in Enfield, Massachusetts, and both female drivers, ages 58 and 76, were pronounced dead shortly following the crash.

Even the most experienced and careful Massachusetts motorcycle drivers are vulnerable to catastrophic and sometimes even fatal injuries on the road. A married couple from Andover Massachusetts are the latest victims. The woman, age 52, was pronounced dead at the scene and the man, age 46, is currently in critical condition as a result of a tragic motorcycle accident in Andover.
