A young man from Norwich was listed in critical but stable condition after he was injured by a vehicle that hit him from behind. The biker was waiting at a red light when, according to police, he was struck from behind by another vehicle.
The accident occurred at Sachem and Washington near Chelsea Parade. The driver, a 78-year-old man from Colchester, had not yet been charged at the time of this report. The biker was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
The biker, Sergio G. Yraita, was taken to The William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich. Recently his condition was upgraded from critical to good. The road was closed for some time as police conducted an accident reconstruction. Police are still investigating the accident.
This accident was not the first of the summer. As temperatures warm more motorcyclists take to the streets and motorcycle accidents increase.
The staff and attorneys at Glass, Lebovitz, Kasheta & Bren hope that Mr. Yraita heals quickly and completely from his injuries.
