Motorcycle accidents often result in serious injury or death

Roadways across the state of Texas have become crowded and are frequently congested. Obviously, those who travel by motorcycle face different challenges and dangers than those in passenger vehicles. Motorcycles are smaller and can be more difficult for other drivers to see. This is a major cause of motorcycle accidents. Since motorcyclists are more exposed and minimally protected, any accident has a greater chance of being serious or fatal.

A recent crash in Tyler resulted in injuries and the tragic death of a motorcyclist. The accident happened just before midnight on South Broadway Avenue. According to reports, a pickup truck and a motorcycle were both southbound on South Broadway approaching an intersection. Investigators said that the motorcycle was slowing or had stopped for the red light and was struck from behind by the pickup truck.

The motorcyclist was thrown from the motorcycle, and the truck crashed into a nearby utility pole, knocking down power lines, reports said. The truck caught fire, and the two occupants were taken to a nearby hospital with injuries. Tragically, the motorcyclist was pronounced dead a short time later at the hospital, authorities said.

Motorcycles are an increasingly popular form of recreation and travel in the state of Texas. To prevent motorcycle accidents, drivers should always exercise caution and be on the lookout for motorcycles. When negligence in an accident results in the death of a loved one, the surviving family members can take legal action. A successful lawsuit could result in much-needed compensation to help families with end-of-life expenses and other monetary losses.
