The same occurs when any type of vehicle impacts with a motorcycle. An accident involving one of these large commercial vehicles or a small motorcycle is almost always very serious. Should the victim survive, they will likely require extensive medical care and treatment, and this could last for months, years, or even for the rest of their lives.
