One person was killed in a US 50 motorcycle accident in Queen Anne’s County on March 12. According to the Maryland State Police, officers responded shortly after 9 p.m. to a report of an accident involving a motorcycle.
A 2016 Harley Davidson was going west on US 50, east of the Kent Narrows Bridge. Then the motorcyclist hit the back of a 2005 Hummer H2. The motorcyclist lost control before they were ejected from the vehicle, the police confirmed. The biker was identified as forty-seven-year-old Eric Thomas Dablase from Stevensville, Maryland; he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Motorcyclist accidents often end with severe injuries or fatalities because of the lack of protection of the rider.
Wearing a helmet might be mandatory in most states, but that is not a guarantee that the rider won’t end with severe head, neck or back injuries. Even if they weren’t speeding, the impact might be fatal for them, since in most cases they are ejected from the motorcycle.
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, make sure to seek medical help as soon as possible. Even if the impact was not strong or harsh and you feel well, let medical personnel examine you. Any injury that might occur later won’t be considered as an injury that happened because of the accident. This will be argued by the insurance company which may cost you a reasonable settlement in the end.
