Motorcycles are capable of extreme speeds, going just as fast, if not faster, then any other motor vehicle on the road. Because of this, motorcyclists are expected to drive in a safe, responsible manner, just as if they were driving any other motor vehicle. However, when a rider acts recklessly, they can cause serious injury or harm to someone else. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should turn to an experienced Boston motorcycle accident attorney here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide you through this complicated litigation process.
Illinois State’s Attorney, John Milhiser, says that 46-year-old Doris Fisher of Springfield, Illinois has been charged with two counts of driving on a revoked license, driving with no insurance, and failing to yield in relation to an accident that occurred on North Dirksen Parkway and Linden Avenue early one Sunday morning. Doris Fisher was arrested for DUI by the Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office, but Attorney Milhiser says they are still investigating those charges and that they have not been formally filed yet. This fatal accident took the life of 29-year-old Justin Heath of Springfield, Illinois. His passenger on the motorcycle, Samantha Clardy, suffered serious injuries and was taken to a hospital where she remains at this time. Doris Fisher is in the Sangamon County Jail on $250,000 bond. Court records from the Sangamon County Circuit Clerk’s Office show that Doris Fisher had three previous DUI arrests and more than 20 citations for driving on a suspended or revoked license.
