Camden, MO (May 20, 2022) – A motorcycle accident that took place in Camden County on Tuesday evening left one man with moderate injuries. Just after 5:15 p.m., on May 17, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto accident on US Highway 54.

Reports from authorities show that a 2017 Ford Focus was in a passing lane. For unknown reasons, the vehicle overtook a 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle on the westbound side of the highway. Both vehicles collided just 132-feet east of Runabout Road.

The motorcycle sustained moderate damage and had to be towed from the site of the crash.

The rider, 50-year-old Bradley Hamilton, was injured in the accident. He was transported by Mercy EMS to Lake Regional Hospital for emergency medical care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Bradley Hamilton at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Camden, MO – Bradley Hamilton Injured in Motorcycle Wreck on US-54 near Runabout RdAuto accidents in the state of Missouri leave tens of thousands of people injured every year. In many instances, people suffer from severe injuries that negatively impact their lives. We see a significant number of people left with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and severely broken bones. Unfortunately, there are many cases where motorcyclists are harmed in these accidents. Riders have very little protection during accidents. As a result, they are more likely to suffer from life-threatening injuries due to crashes.

Some of the most common causes of auto accidents we see include:

  • Motorists who are impaired by drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who are distracted by cell phones, radios, people, or other objects
