Off-duty Louisiana police officer dies in motorcycle accident

Motorcycle accidents often occur when drivers of larger vehicles fail to stop for motorcycles with the right of way or fail to see motorcycles when the vehicle drivers are making maneuvers with their cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles. These common mistakes often result in significant injuries to the motorcyclists who were unfortunate enough to be in the vicinities of negligent drivers. In some cases motorcyclists and their passengers are killed due to the dangerous driving practices of others.
