Last night, two car accidents involving motorcycles occurred in Northwest Houston.
The first car accident on West Little York, occurred near the intersection with Plantation Crest. At about 9:00 p.m. a motorcyclist pulled out of a parking lot at a high rate of speed. He struck the side of a car that had just turned onto West Little York. The female driver alleges that she did not see the motorcyclist due to the high rate of speed that he was travelling at, but could this have been the result of a distracted driver? The driver of the motorcycle was airlifted to an area hospital in critical condition. The female driver of the car was also treated for injuries.
The second car accident occurred on West Little York near Commerce Creek a little before midnight. It is believed that a car was racing a motorcycle. At the time of the accident, both vehicles were headed eastbound. The car came to a stop in a ditch after it lost control. The driver of the car was ejected from his vehicle. He was rapidly airlifted to a local hospital in critical condition, but later succumbed to his injuries. According to witnesses, the driver of the motorcycle did not stop to render aid. Perhaps the driver of the motorcycle was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victim’s family in this time of sorrow.
