Last year between June 1 and June 30, MedStar responded to 33 crashes involving bicycles and motorcycles. Of these, 21 patients were transported to area hospitals. This year between June 1 and June 30, we have responded to 41 motorcycle crashes and transported 28 patients to the hospital. This is an increase of 24% from last year.
That’s why it’s so important to teach your kids bike safety as they enjoy their increased independence, and to wear helmets when riding motorcycles.
