On-ramps and off-ramps are a common place for accidents to happen due to the differences in speed. If someone is faster or slower than expected, or merges in at the wrong time, accidents can happen.
One man died riding his motorcycle in such a situation. NOLA.com says that the man died on the I-10 on-ramp near Xavier University yesterday evening around 6 PM. They say that he was hit by another driver, but did not release further details.
With so little information, it’s hard to guess what happened on this on-ramp. Did another car miss the exit and swerve across to make it? Did the motorcycle slow down too quickly and got hit from behind? However it happened, now it’s up to the authorities and the insurance company to investigate what happened.
