Texas motorcycle accident claims life of young man

Warmer weather is a siren call that few people can resist, including motorcycle enthusiasts. Unfortunately, so many motorists do not take these smaller vehicles into consideration, and what may only be a minor wreck for a car or truck can lead to fatal injuries when there is a motorcycle accident. One Texas family is now mourning the loss of their loved one after just such a wreck.

The accident occurred on the last Friday in April. According to the report, the 25-year-old man and a friend were driving their motorcycles along a local road in the early morning hours. A driver of a large pick up truck was proceeding down the same road in the opposing lane. An eyewitness reportedly stated that the driver appeared to be traveling at the posted speed just shortly before the wreck.

For reasons that are as yet unknown, the truck veered across the dividing section and plowed headlong into one of the two motorcycles. The truck driver then continued on without stopping and rendering aid. The rider was transported to a local hospital, but his injuries were not survivable. The other rider was not injured in the wreck.

Texas officials are requesting assistance from the public in order to locate the driver of the truck who caused this fatal motorcycle accident. In the meantime, the victim's family is likely struggling to deal with their devastating loss. Once the truck driver is found, the victim's family may consider their options concerning the filing of a wrongful death civil suit. Many families in these untenable circumstances choose to file these suits in order to seek monetary restitution for the financial damages that tend to accumulate and often make these tragic losses even more difficult to handle.
