October 3, 2012, ERIE, PA — Pennsylvania motorcycle accidents are among the most devastating motor vehicle accidents because of the vulnerability of riders. That vulnerabillity is made worse when an injured motorcyclist is left without aid after an accident. One Erie man will pay the price for leaving an injured motorcyclist when he is sentenced in December for an Erie motorcycle crash hit and run.
Lawrence M. King, 33, of Erie plead guilty Tuesday to charges that he seriously injured a motorcyclist in a hit and run accident on November 13, 2011 in the 1700 block of Cherry Street in Erie. King will be sentenced December 10, 2012 by Judge Connelly and he faces a minimum sentence of 90 days in the Erie County Prison.
Mr. King was driving a Honda Accord on Cherry Street when he crossed the center line and struck a motorcyclist on a 2007 Harley Davidson. The motorcyclist suffered a complex leg fracture and lost a substantial volume of blood. Despite the severity of the injuries, Mr. King left the scene and did not immediately seek assistance for the accident victim.
Mr. King’s charges also include driving with a suspended or revoked license.
