Montgomery, AL – Kenji Sledge Killed in Motorcycle Crash at Eastern Blvd and Calmar Dr
Montgomery, AL (March 09, 2021) – A motorcycle rider was killed during a collision with a car on Saturday, March 6th.
According to the Montgomery Police Department, 44-year-old Kenji Sledge was riding a 2019 Suzuki GSXR1000X when he and a 2020 Dodge Challenger collided with one another at about 5:15 p.m.
Police officers and fire medics reported to the scene at the intersection of Calmar Drive and Eastern Boulevard. Upon their arrival, they discovered Sledge seriously injured in the roadway.
The driver of the Challenger was unharmed during the incident. Sledge ultimately succumbed to his injuries after he was taken to a local trauma center.
A police investigation determined that Sledge was driving northbound along Eastern Boulevard when the Dodge, driving southbound along Eastern Boulevard, tried to make a lefthand turn onto Calmar Drive and, in doing so, crashed into Sledge’s Suzuki.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Kenji Sledge, at this time.
Wrongful Deaths in Montgomery
Filing a wrongful death claim against a negligent driver in Alabama is different from doing so in another state. Alabama is very restrictive, permitting only punitive damages to be awarded. This financial compensation is not intended to remunerate surviving members of the family for their loss and is not designed to replace the income of the deceased. Instead, the aim of punitive damages is to act as a penalty to deter or otherwise discourage the negligent or malicious act from re-occurring.
When victims lose their lives in accidents caused by the negligent or careless actions of other motorists, it is crucial that their families contact a wrongful death attorney in Alabama at their earliest convenience. Families may be entitled to compensation from those at-fault to alleviate the costs they face moving forward. A knowledgeable legal team, like the attorneys at the Law Office of Dwayne L.
