Motorcyclist victim identified in Grand Island accident

Motorcyclist victim identified in Grand Island accident

The Grand Island Police Department has identified a Loup City man as the victim of motorcycle accident on Thursday. Forty-six-year-old James R. O’Brien was driving a motorcycle that sped up to beat a traffic signal when it collided with another vehicle in the intersection.

Grand Island Police adds that a contributing factor to the crash was that O’Brien was wearing a novelty helmet instead of a DOT approved helmet. The Police Department says a DOT approved helmet could have prevented the seriousness of the head injury that contributed to his death.
