A 26-year old man was killed on a motorcycle late Sunday evening in Gadsden, AL. The incident took place around 7:00 on HWY 431 when the motorcycle ran a red light at an *excessive speed of more than 120mph* and struck a Honda SUV. The 26-year old was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Car wrecks are the # 1 cause of death for people under 25, claiming 11,000 young lives every year. Fortunately, the National Safety Council created a program called Alive at 25 which is proven to be 90% effective in reducing these fatalities.
Because Alabama ranks 3rd worst in the U.S. in traffic deaths, Alabama trial lawyer Andy Citrin became certified in 2009 to teach the Alive at 25 program. A top-rated injury attorney with a 26 year track record of winning large verdicts and settlements for people innocently injured or killed in car, truck, and motorcycle wrecks, Mr. Citrin has personally taught the 4 hour “Alive at 25” program to thousands of area high school students free of charge over the past three years.
