A multivehicle accident seriously injured a motorcyclist in Missouri late last month. The accident occurred shortly before 6:30 p.m. on Thursday June 20, 2013, about two miles south of Springfield, Missouri.
According to the Missouri State Patrol, 40-year-old Christopher Landorf was driving a Toyota Tundra westbound on Farm Road 192 when he allegedly slowed down. As the Tundra slowed down, a motorcyclist, who has been identified as 51-year-old Michael G. Koory, of Nixa, was reportedly approaching the Tundra. It has been reported that Mr. Koory attempted to get out of the way of the Tundra and pulled his 1982 Honda Aspencade motorcycle from the westbound lane into the eastbound lane.
A 15-year-old driver from Nixa, who has been identified as Aunustie H. Bratt, was reportedly traveling in the eastbound lane when Mr. Koory’s vehicle entered the eastbound lane. Ms. Bratt’s Volkswagen Jetta hit Mr. Koory’s bike, and the impact allegedly caused Mr. Koory’s bike to collide with the Tundra.
Mr. Koory was reportedly wearing a motorcycle helmet at the time of this multivehicle accident. However, he was reported to be seriously injured in the crash, and he was taken to Cox South Hospital in Springfield for treatment of his accident injuries. The exact nature of his Missouri motorcycle accident injuries were not immediately released to the media following the crash.
Our Missouri motorcycle accident lawyers extend our best wishes for a full and fast recovery to Mr. Koory and to anyone else who was injured in this Springfield-area multi-vehicle accident.
