Texas officials investigating months-old motorcycle accident

There are some investigations that seem to drag on for months. While officials typically work to ensure that all angles of serious collision are thoroughly examined, the families of victims may grow weary of waiting for the authorities to announce what led to the loss of their loved one. Texas officials are still working on an examination of the scene of a fatal motorcycle accident that occurred in July.

The police announced that the road where the wreck occurred would be shut down in both directions while crews collected information from the scene. Officials did not state whether they were looking for specific information. They only indicated that the road closure would probably last for the duration of the morning. 

According to the report at the time, a 49-year-old man was operating his motorcycle in the northbound lane of the road. A passenger van with three occupants was reportedly turning onto the southbound lane. As the larger vehicle was completing its turn, the motorcycle collided with its side. The biker was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The three occupants of the van were all taken to the hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries. Texas officials have not yet stated whether the motorist will face any charges in connection with this motorcycle accident. The victim's family are likely anxiously waiting to learn the results of the official investigation regarding what led to their loved one's tragic death. Even if a motorist is not criminally charged following these types of collisions, the surviving families may opt to file a wrongful death civil suit if the evidence suggests that the negligence of another party caused the fatal accident. When these cases are successfully navigated, the family may receive monetary compensation to help offset documented financial damages.
