Huntington man dead after Sunday motorcycle crash

HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): A Huntington man died in a Sunday afternoon motorcycle crash.

The Huntington County Coroner’s Office says Cameron M. Eckert, 26, was riding south on State Road 5 near Waterworks Road at 12:13 p.m. That’s when officials say he didn’t see a car going north. Eckert then turned head-on into the path of the car, ejecting him. He was wearing a helmet.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. His cause of death was from blunt force traumatic injuries sustained in the crash, and his death has been ruled accidental.

It is only May 24th? How many motorcycle accidents & deaths has this area already had??
Tragic craziness!
Slow down everyone!
Trucks, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, animals!

Arriving safely, might take a little longer… but you stand a better chance of getting to your destination!

Be safe (even though it didn’t help here) by wearing all your available safety gear and restraints.

…and, Don’t just look both ways! Take the additional time to look back again. Left, Right, Left, Go!
(this goes out to all my 4-legged friends out there too.)

While i’m up here on this little soapbox, lets keep an eye out for the little 2-legged ones, too.
Please, do a quick walk-around of your vehicle before you back out, and slow down on the tight Drives/Streets/Avenues, with children at play.

Safety, is an act, which can prevent most accidents.
