This crash is another reminder of how important it is to exercise safety. Not only do motorists need to be cautious of the motorcycles around them, but also motorcyclists need to be good defensive drivers. Motorcyclists can also take precautions such as wearing a helmet to try to reduce injuries if something does happen.
