A trucker from Massachusetts was travelling in Montreal, Quebec when he witnessed a horrific motorcycle accident directly in front of him late Wednesday, April 29th.
The trucker, Rob Nugent, a driver with US Ecology was slowing to take a curve when a motorcyclist passed him on the left, and appeared to be travelling to fast to make the curve and crashed into the guardrail. The rider was then thrown over the guardrail and down the ridge. The motorcycle continued on without the rider down the road for a bit.
Nugent safely stopped his truck and ran to the guardrail to check on the rider. The video highlights Nugent’s immediate decision to attempt to stop other passing vehicles, finally getting a police officer to stop. The video ends with the police officer heading down the steep ridge to get to the rider.
Freight Broker Live was able to speak to Nugent later that night. Nugent informed Freight Broker Live the rider did survive the accident but was going to “feel some pain for a while.”
“I ride my motorcycle too, so I only hope someone does it for me,” Nugent told Freight Broker Live.
