Police find drug use in deadly motorcycle accident

Intoxicated drivers are a danger to everyone on the roadways. They have slower reaction times, have a harder time paying attention and make poor judgment calls. While anyone can be hurt by a person driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, motorcyclists are at an increased risk of serious injuries. As most Washington residents understand, motorcycles provide virtually no protection to their riders, and helmets can only go so far to keep people safe. Sadly, many motorcycle accidents are deadly.

A negligent driver could easily cause a collision and leave an unsuspecting driver or passenger with serious injuries.
