Motorcycle accident on Texas road results in fatality

Many Texas residents own and enjoy a motorcycle, whether as a part-time hobby or as their main mode of transportation. Although these vehicles can certainly be fun to drive, unfortunately, motorcycle drivers are typically more vulnerable to injury than drivers of other vehicles, such as cars and trucks. Although the cause is unclear at this point, several people were recently involved in a motorcycle accident that included a pickup truck; sadly, the motorcycle driver did not fare well.

The crash happened just before midnight on a recent Wednesday evening when a motorcycle and a pickup truck were both headed southbound on a local roadway. According to investigators, the pickup truck was traveling behind the motorcycle, which then slowed down for a red light. At that point, the pickup truck hit the motorcycle from behind, and the truck proceeded to hit a utility pole, bringing down live power lines.

Several witnesses to the crash worked to help the crash victims, including an occupant of the truck who had to be pulled from the vehicle. The truck erupted in flames at one point. Both occupants of the truck were taken to a local hospital with injuries, and the motorcycle driver was also transported to a medical facility but later died from his injuries.

When the investigation is completed, authorities may find the motorcycle accident was caused due to negligence on the part of the truck driver. If the gathered evidence supports this conclusion, the deceased victim's grieving family may consider pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit in Texas civil court. An experienced personal injury lawyer can examine the accident details and explain the family's legal options. A successfully litigated case may help mitigate unexpected costs, such as funeral expenses and lost income.
