For many people, the wide open spaces of Texas are best explored behind the handle bars of a motorcycle. Motorcycles are an economical and fun way to travel. Traveling by motorcycle has become a very popular form of recreation across the state of Texas. Unfortunately, motorcycles can also be a very dangerous way to travel. Motorcycle accidents are often fatal since riders are fully exposed.
A recent accident in San Antonio claimed the life of a motorcyclist. The crash happened on Culebra Road during the morning hours. According to reports, the motorcyclist was traveling west when an eastbound car made a left turn into the path of the motorcycle.
Reports said the motorcyclist hit the rear quarter of the car and laid down the motorcycle, causing him to be ejected. Tragically, the motorcyclist suffered massive internal injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene, authorities said. Reportedly, the driver of the car was not injured and stayed on the scene. Police said they do not believe alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash.
Since motorcycles are typically small, they can be harder for other drivers to spot. This is one of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. Undoubtedly, motorcycles are a fun way to get around, but crowded roadways in the state of Texas can be very dangerous for motorcyclists. Those who have suffered the loss of a loved one in this type of accident have options available that may ease their pain and suffering. By contacting an attorney and filing a lawsuit, surviving family members could be awarded much-needed financial compensation to help with end-of-life expenses.
