Motorcycle Accident At Predictable Intersection In Lufkin
This feeder has always been a little scary for me. I'm always worried about someone coming up over the hill, before I see them. That could have been the case with this vehicle accident today.On the loop in Lufkin today, Friday February 24th in front of Carroway Funeral Home, across from the DPS office there was a car vs. motorcycle accident. These types of accidents do not normally end that well. Luckily that was not the case today.
Even the motorcycle started right up, as you can see in the video. It acts just like a lawn mower, when you turn it over to fix a wheel or change the oil. White smoke is seen, but the motorcycle is able to get off the road under it's own power.
The driver of the motorcycle was taken to the hospital, with some cuts and abrasions, it is not known if he was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. Texas State Law no longer requires the use of a helmet while driving a motorcycle.
I did not get the explanation of how this accident happened, but I am assuming it had to do with the truck merging left on the on ramp. That is the most critical time for any motorcycle rider, as drivers can't see them going left.
