Greg Hodak, 51, died in a motorcycle collision in North Iowa on June 17th. 74-year-old Susan Pierce was turning left at the intersection of North Pierce Avenue and 8th Street NW when Hodak collided with her. Hodak, who was riding a motorcycle, was taken to Mercy Medical Center where he died from injuries he sustained in the accident. Pierce was treated at the scene for her injuries.
There is not much to write about this one accident. Negligence and fault will come down to line of sight of the driver and what appears to be her turning before the roadway is clear. Motorcycles may be harder to see than semi-trucks but that doesn’t excuse drivers with poor eyesight from giving up their driver’s licenses. And in this case that is a likely scenario that will play out in a wrongful death lawsuit.
