The study, published in the American Journal of Surgery analyzed data from the National Trauma Data Bank between 2002 and 2006 and showed that black riders were 50% more likely to die than white riders, despite the fact that African Americans were more likely to be wearing helmets at the time of the crash. The disparity held up even after controlling for the severity of the accident, the biker’s gender and insurance status.
The study did not allow for any difference in types of motorcycles, whether cruiser or sportbike, which some observers say could account for the higher fatality rate for blacks, which are more likely to ride fast sportbikes.
Fort Myers Florida Police say they arrested 53-year-old Kimberly Alters on Sunday for allegedly attempting to hire a hit man to murder her husband. The Associated Press says Alters was arrested after meeting with a person who turned out to be a confidential informant. Authorities say Alters gave the informant a photo of her husband and $125 to buy a firearm, then said she wanted the hit done while she and her children were visiting a theme park, according to the Miami Herald.
