As Alabama finally seems to have shaken off the long, icy fingers of a winter that lasted longer than normal, more motorcyclists appear to be dusting off their bikes to enjoy the warmer weather. However, the increase of motorcycles on the road can also lead to an increase in "didn't see him" accidents -- those in which drivers claim to not have seen a motorcycle that they struck. Recently, an Alabama motorcyclist was struck after another driver said he simply didn't see the man coming.
The incident occurred on April 1, but the accident was no joke. A 23-year-old man yielded at a stop sign before he attempted to cross an intersection that a motorcyclist was traveling toward. The driver apparently thought that the way was clear and drove forward. After entering the intersection, he struck the motorcycle and its driver.
