Deadly Moped Crashes in Nevada

Riding a moped is a ton of fun, and it is a common pastime for many people across the country. In fact, mopeds and scooters are rising in popularity in the United States. Statistics show that nearly 40 percent of moped accidents result in bone fractures and nearly 7 percent cause head trauma. Motorcycle and moped crashes both can result in severe and similar types of injuries. When you look at the data, you find that motorcyclists are nearly 27 times more likely to die than someone riding in a passenger car.
