On Wednesday, June 14, 2017, 2 people on a motorcycle were involved in a crash with an SUV.
According to KREM, Spokane Police and Spokane Fire Department arrived on the scene and used an air bag system to lift the SUV off of the riders. Air bag systems like this, sometimes called rescue air cushions, are used like jacks to lift heavy things such as vehicles off of people after they have become pinned underneath them.
While we are not yet certain how this accident occurred, according to the article, the SUV had struck the motorcycle.
We hope that the motorcyclists recover from this terrible accident.
Look twice, save a life
After a particularly wet and cold winter, motorcycles have returned to the streets of Spokane. Many people miss motorcycles when they do not expect to see them. This happens far too often, as explained by this motorcyclist on Road and Track. In other cases, drivers are distracted or in negligent in some way. And, of course, in some accidents, the motorcyclist played a role.
