Compensation awarded to bikers following A689 collision

Two motorcyclists have been awarded road traffic accident compensation after suffering serious personal injuries in a car crash.

The accident occurred when a 52-year-old man driving a Porsche Boxster attempted to overtake several vehicles along the A689 in County Durham. He had successfully passed two cars and had been attempting to overtake a third, when five motorcycles came around the bend in front of him.

In an attempt to avoid the accident, the car driver pulled in behind the vehicle he had been trying to overtake but as he did so he clipped the rear end of the car which caused his vehicle to spin onto the opposite carriageway and collide with two of the motorcyclists.

The two bikers both suffered serious personal injuries in the accident, including numerous fractures. One of the victims is now confined to a wheelchair.

The car driver was given a five month prison sentence which was suspended for two years and 250 hours of unpaid work after pleading guilty to a dangerous driving charge.

He was also suspended from driving for two years and ordered to pay the two motorcyclists £10,000 each in road traffic accident compensation
