There are traffic accidents every day around the world, but luckily, most people walk away from them. When motorcycles are involved, however, the chances of the rider walking away are much lower.

Austin personal injury attorneyAccording to studies riding a motorcycle on the roads increases the chance of experiencing a deadly crash over riding in a passenger car.

In early June, Madison College counselor Al Studesville died in a motorcycle accident in Texas, along with his wife, Janet.

Studseville was a counselor in the Counseling and College Success Department at Madison College, according to the Madison College VP for Student Development, Keith Cornille.

Al’s motorcycle was hit head-on by a tractor trailer when it crossed the center line of the road, reported The Amarillo Globe News.

Al and Janet were taking a motorcycle ride across the country, which they often did when they were hit in Texas.

Janet was the president of Women in Focus, according to their longtime friend, Merritt Norvell.

Norvell also shared that Al, along with being a counselor at Madison College, also was a founder of 100 Black Men of Madison. also reported that helmets are the best way to protect motorcycle riders and passengers from fatalities, with a 37 percent safety rating for riders and 41 percent for passengers.

It was not reported whether or not Al and Janet Studesville were wearing helmets at the time of the accident, but they were experienced bikers and in 2004 helmet use increased throughout the entire country, at which time the amount of motorcycle fatalities decreased dramatically.
