Motorcyclist Killed After Getting Hit by a Car
Calendar icon September 22, 2020

A motorcyclist was killed in an accident that occurred in the early morning hours on Tuesday. The accident happened on Interstate 290 in the Town of Tonawanda.

Authorities responded to Interstate 290 east, near the Colvin Boulevard exit, after they got a report of an injured motorcycle rider after he got hit by a car at about 3:35 a.m.

Forty-seven-year-old John A. Serrano from North Tonawanda was traveling eastbound on Interstate 290 when his motorcycle left the pavement and he was forced onto the middle lane of traffic.

According to the police, Serrano was hit by several vehicles while lying on the road and sustained fatal injuries at the scene.

The accident is investigated by the Town of Tonawanda Police Department. Drivers of the other vehicles that became involved in the accident are cooperating with the police. None of the drivers had any injuries and the police say there won’t be any charges against them. 

The police ask anyone with information about this incident to call the Town of Tonawanda Police Department at (716) 879-6614, or their confidential tip line: (716) 879-6606.

Motorcyclists are exposed to a high risk of fatal injuries due to the fact that they don’t have any protection (besides the helmets).

Even if they’re careful drivers, sometimes all it takes is a little distraction, unadjusted speed, or road bump, for such accidents to occur.

If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, or you were injured in such circumstances, make sure you speak to a motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible.
