A Greenville County, SC crash led to the death of a motorcyclist on Friday, June 13.
Authorities say Marc Cattaruzza, 53, was riding his motorcycle on North East Main Street near Springdale Drive, around 10 PM on Friday night. He slowed down to make a left turn, and the 2017 Nissan Sentra behind him kept going. It slammed into the back of Cattaruzza’s motorcycle, ejecting him. Sadly, he later died of his injuries.
Unfortunately, motorcycle crashes are not uncommon. Frequently they are caused by motorists simply not seeing a motorcycle before they make a turn. Drivers are advised to “look twice and save a life,” as it is easy to miss smaller vehicles like motorcycles.
However, in this case, the crash was caused by the Nissan Sentra’s speed. Police arrested its driver, 22-year-old Guianella Diaz-Munoz, and charged her with driving too fast for conditions.
