All it takes is a moment to change a life forever. An accident is often one of those moments, especially when there are injuries and the possibility of jail time. But an accident is just that — an accident that no one every meant to happen, even if there is drinking involved. It’s not difficult for someone to think he or she is not too drunk to operate a vehicle, especially if there hasn’t been a lot of drinking going on.
Two people were hospitalized after a motorcycle rider hit them on a street in Philadelphia. The rider is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol.
The victims were a 29-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man. While both were injured, none of their injuries were considered life-threatening, according to Philadelphia police. The 60-year-old motorcycle rider hit the two as they were crossing the street.
Both victims were taken quickly to the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania, where they were judged to be in stable condition.
The motorcyclist himself suffered minor injuries, police said. He was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
