Man injured in hit-and-run motorcycle accident in Texas

Most motorcyclists are aware of the dangers they face as they travel the roads and highways of Texas. But even the most diligent rider cannot prevent every motorcycle accident, especially a rear-end collision. Recently, such a crash left a man with serious injuries.

Texas officials reported to the scene of a wreck that occurred along a feeder road off of a local highway. The rider had exited from Texas 121 and was traveling along the feeder road. The motorcyclist was possibly unaware of the sedan approaching from the rear. That vehicle then collided with the rear of the bike. According to the report, the driver of the car then proceeded to run his vehicle over both the victim and his motorcycle.

Both were apparently dragged several feet before becoming dislodged from the car. The driver did not stop at the time of the crash but instead left the scene. The victim was transported to a local medical facility where he was reported to have suffered serious injuries of an undisclosed nature.

Texas officials are seeking information from the public concerning the identity of the driver or the possible owner of the vehicle believed to have been involved. Provided the victim survives his injuries, he will most likely face a long and difficult recovery. On top of the physical and psychological injuries that this motorcycle accident inflicted, he may also have sustained heavy financial losses from both the medical bills and lost wages. Victims and their families who find themselves in these difficult situations may be entitled to file a personal injury civil lawsuit to pursue recovery of the monetary losses incurred as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of another party.
