Texas motorcycle accident leaves one dead, several injured

Traffic conditions can change in the blink of an eye, and no one may know this better than a motorcyclist. Debris in the road, poor weather conditions or road construction can all require an operator to act quickly to avoid a motorcycle accident. Sometimes, it is not always possible to get out of the way of a hazard, especially when a rider is suddenly in the path of another vehicle. Several Texas motorcyclists experienced this terrifying event on a recent Saturday night, and the result was tragic.

The motorcyclists, several of whom had passengers on their bikes, were returning from a benefit when an SUV swerved into their lane and collided head-on with the two lead bikers. The SUV had apparently struck the rear of another vehicle, lost control and spun into the opposite lane where the motorcyclists were traveling. A 49-year-old man operating one of the lead motorcycles died at the scene, and the operator of the second bike suffered minor injuries. Both of their passengers also suffered injuries.

Two other bikers managed to lay their bikes down in an attempt to avoid colliding with the SUV and the disabled bikes ahead of them. One of the men was transported to the hospital in serious condition. The woman diving the SUV also suffered injuries in the accident, but the children in her vehicle were not harmed. There is no information about the vehicle the SUV allegedly struck or the reason why the two vehicles collided.

Motorcycle riders are frequently the victims of drivers who fail to pay attention or who may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Because of the lack of protection afforded by a bike, motorcyclists and their passengers are at risk of significant and even fatal injuries. When seeking compensation for injuries and losses resulting from a motorcycle accident, those in Texas can find compassionate advocacy from an experienced attorney.
