Texas man killed in truck versus motorcycle accident

In the majority of cases, an accident between any large vehicle and a motorcycle will not end well for the biker. Many of these accidents occur because the driver of the larger vehicle does not notice the smaller vehicle in time to avoid a collision. Recently, a Texas man was a victim of another motorcycle accident in Waco.

Police were called to the scene of an accident between a pick up truck and a motorcycle on a recent Friday evening. The wreck occurred when the driver of the truck apparently proceeded to make a left turn into the path of the motorcyclist. He was facing north at the time and reportedly did not notice the approaching biker.

Police stated that the motorcyclist may have attempted to avoid a collision by laying the motorcycle on its side. The bike and its rider then slid underneath the larger vehicle. Emergency workers transported the unconscious 39-year-old man to a local hospital where he was declared deceased.

It is as yet unclear whether the truck driver will face any criminal charges in Texas regarding this fatal motorcycle accident. The victim's family will now have to deal with their loss for the rest of their lives. Along with the emotional pain, they have likely incurred significant monetary damages as well. They may elect to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the trucker and his or her employer due to this tragic wreck. A ruling in their favor could help ease the financial burdens caused by the fatal accident.
