2 killed in tragic motorcycle accident in LeClaire, Iowa

Drivers who are drowsy, drunk, distracted or negligent put others on the roads at risk Whether it's later at night or in the middle of the afternoon, drivers need to stay vigilant. They should stay in their lanes, signal when they want to turn and be extra cautious around motorcyclists, who can be harder to see on the roads.

When a driver makes an error that causes his or her vehicle to cross the center line, an accident can be the result. If that vehicle hits you and your family, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver or seek out compensation through an insurance claim.

Two motorcyclists were killed when they were part of a four-vehicle accident. The two men killed, one 57 and one 59, were killed when they were hit by a 57-year-old man driving a Ford Explorer. The accident took place at around 10:22 p.m., so it was dark when the collision occurred. The KWQC news reports that the SUV crossed the center line while in LeClaire, Iowa, resulting in the vehicle hitting two motorcycles. There's no information why the driver drifted into the other lane, but both drivers of the motorcycles were killed in the crash.

The second motorcycle collided with a third, which resulted in another driver crashing. The driver of the third motorcycle survived and was able to be treated at the scene. Police reported that the driver of the Explorer suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The case is under investigation, but police have said that charges are pending against the driver of the Explorer.
