September 10, 2010 - Cumberland County, Pa. - A Mechanicsburg motorcyclist received a citation for failing to ride in the proper lane on August 2nd after his motorcycle began veering uncontrollably.
According to Pennlive.com, the motorcyclist, Julian L. Sariano was riding approximately 400 yards east of Old Stonehouse Road when his 2004 Honda CBR motorcycle suddenly began veering to the right for unknown reasons.
The 25-year-old motorcyclist was able to take control of the motorcycle and pull it back on the road. After continuing to ride for a short distance, he crashed the motorcycle, which came to a complete stop on the soft shoulder of West Trindle Road.
He was transported to Harrisburg Hospital, where he received medical treatment for "moderate" injuries. Law enforcement personnel said he was wearing a helmet at the time of the motorcycle accident. Police did however issue the victim a citation for failure to use the proper lane. No other motorists were involved in the accident.
In some instances, a motorcycle accident may be caused due to a defect in the motorcycle's design or the result of recent mechanical work, such as a misalignment. If your motorcycle has been misaligned, this can pose serious risks for you and other motorists, as unexplained veering may occur. If you've sustained injuries due to this sort of defect, the manufacturer may be considered liable.
