Over the course of just over four weeks, there have already been four fatal accidents involving motorcyclists, all within Linn County.
The most recent accident involves Benjamin Kinkead, 36, who lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a ditch just south of Palo on the morning of Saturday, July 26. Another motorcyclist, Evan Volkers, 24, was fatally hit by a semi-trailer while going south on an exit ramp along I-380 on the morning of July 14.
These occurrences have been stunning the Cedar Rapids area, thus reinforcing local motorcyclists to drive defensively and remain visible. Cedar Rapids police has advised motorcyclists in the area to wear helmets and bright-colored clothing to increase their visibility and lessen their physical injuries, should they encounter an accident on the road.
Our entire legal team at Pete Leehey Law Firm, P.C. sends our deepest condolences to the families of those affected by these local tragedies.
