Just before 9 a.m., on August 24, the Hopkinsville Police Department responded to a motor vehicle collision that occurred on Canton Street.

Preliminary investigations provided by the Hopkinsville police show that a motorcyclist was riding westbound on Canton Street during the morning hours.

Riding a motorcycle can be a rejuvenating endeavor. Here in Kentucky, we see people every day utilize this method of transportation to make it to their destinations on a regular basis. Although most motorcyclists are careful and considerate while traveling along our roadways, we continue to see innocent people harmed in accidents with drivers who engage in negligent actions.

Following a motor vehicle accident, you may have to deal with painful injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Trying to get back up on your feet after a debilitating accident can be incredibly challenging. Regrettably, it can be costly as well.
