Higher injury odds for older motorcyclists

A new study, published in the journal Injury Prevention found that older bikers are three times as likely to be severely injured in a crash as younger riders. The percentage of older bikers on the road is quickly rising, and their involvement in accidents is a growing concern. A team of researchers, led by Tracy L. Jackson, a graduate student in the epidemiology department at Brown University, wanted a closer look at their injury patterns.
