Motorcyclist and passenger injured in Augusta

Michael Conley of Pittston and Angela Haase of Augusta were seriously injured when the motorcycle Conley was operating ran into the back of an SUV operated by Andrew Collar. Police are investigating the cause of the accident.

The crash occurred just after 11 a.m. as Conley followed Collar’s vehicle south toward Chelsea on Stone Street. The officer investigating the crash said that speed did not appear to be a factor in the collision.

As Portland and Bangor accident attorneys with a Statewide personal injury law practice, Peter Thompson and Associates has represented dozens motorcycle operators in similar collisions. An investigation into the cause of this accident would need to examine whether the driver of the SUV stopped suddenly or failed to give proper turn signals. The passenger on the motorcycle would have potential claims against the motorcyclist’s insurance coverage, as well as the SUV operator’s insurance.
