Bicycle accidents when the collision involves a motor vehicle are almost always horrific and many times fatal. A person with no protection around them being hit by a several thousand pound piece of metal at even the slowest of speeds is incredibly dangerous. The same can be said for motorcycle accidents in Las Vegas – they are very rare when the rider can simply walk away from the crash or even escape with a brief hospital stay and short recovery.
