Motorcycle crash kills 78-year-old; drug intoxication blamed

A Connecticut man is facing serious criminal charges after he allegedly killed a man in North Branford. The driver, age 22, is accused of causing the motorcycle crash when he rear-ended the 78-year-old victim's vehicle. That younger man is accused of drug-related offenses, and officers believe that he may have been intoxicated on a variety of substances at the time of the collision. The defendant is also accused of vehicular manslaughter and negligent homicide, among other violations.

Motorcycle accident deaths drop on average nationwide

The yearly rates of fatal motorcycle crashes fell for only the second time since 1997, according to recently released 2013 statistics. A new report from the Governors Highway Safety Association showed that a 7 percent drop occurred in motorcycle deaths throughout the country. About 300 fewer deaths occurred in 2013 than in 2012.
