Moped Rider Sustains Head Injuries in Crash on Tall Oak Drive in Virginia Beach, VA

By John Cooper, VA Beach Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

As a Virginia Beach motorcycle accident injury lawyer, I see many riders who are seriously injured on mopeds and scooters.

I was saddened to read about how the rider of a moped, sustained head injuries after he was thrown from his bike when it hit a pole on Tall Oak Drive last Friday.

Police found the rider lying in the street, according to Grazia Moyers, of the Virginia Beach Police Department.

“The driver was operating a 2013 Tao-Tao moped, going northbound and was approaching a sharp curve in the road before the crash. As he entered the curve, the moped left the roadway, struck a curb and then a concrete light pole,” reported

The rider was wearing an approved helmet. But it didn’t prevent him from sustaining head injuries and he was reported to be in a critical condition in a local hospital. Police said he was inexperienced in riding mopeds.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash. I hope the rider recovers from his injuries. Head injuries are among the most serious injuries we deal with as Virginia Beach accident lawyers.
