A good reason for training

A 23-year-old P02 was headed to a friend’s house, traveling a two-lane road about 40 mph. As he started around a corner, a friend riding near him made the same turn, causing the P02 to lose control. He veered off the road into a grass patch and was thrown from the motorcycle.

Injuries included a broken left clavicle and numerous bruises to the victim’s left torso. He was treated and released the same day at a local hospital but will miss six to eight weeks of work.

The P02 had no motorcycle training, nor had he gone through the motorcycle-safety course.
