According to NBC11 news
, a woman was injured in a Colorado motorcycling accident
on Sunday. The motorcycle accident occurred on Highway 65, near where Lands End Road meets Highway 65. The driver of the motorcycle, Maryann Arter, was riding with a group of motorcyclists when she lost control of her motorcycle, hit the brakes, and skid 185 feet, before being ejected from her bike. She was airlifted immediately to a local hospital with arm and head injuries. According to reports, she only had a learner’s permit for the motorcycle and she was not wearing a helmet at the time of the Colorado motorcycle crash.

It is no secret that motorcycle riding is far more dangerous than riding in a car. Motorcycle riders have very little to protect them from other vehicles and the road other than their clothes, and sometimes a helmet and leather riding gear. Colorado law does not require motorcycle riders to wear a motorcycle helmet, though motorcycle survival rates are higher when the rider is wearing a helmet.
