Perhaps one of the most damaging causes of motorcycle accidents – and one that has the potential to cause severe injuries (including those that are fatal) to a motorcyclist – is if another vehicle collides with a motorcycle in a “head-on” collision.  An example of such a type of collision was seen in a Southern Illinois accident involving a collision between a minivan and motorcycle that occurred in Wabash County on Tuesday (May 24, 2016) afternoon.

That accident is discussed in the May 25, 2016 article titled “Man Flown to Hospital after Motorcycle Accident.”   Additional details can be seen in the article.
