James Scholar involved in fatal motorcycle crash in Athens, Texas

Reports coming out of Athens, Texas state that James Scholar, of Aubrey, died in a fatal vehicle accident involving a motorcycle. Law enforcement believes that the accident occurred at about 5:30 PM on U.S. 175. Police reports state that a motorcycle, ridden by Scholar, was about to go on the off ramp when a pick-up truck pulled out in front of the motorcycle. The truck that was stopped at the sign failed to yield the right of way. Scholar died from the injuries he sustained in the accident. James Creel, of Palestine, was the truck driver and was not injured.

The driver of a Jeep SUV died in a fatal single-vehicle accident. Law enforcement believes that the accident occurred at about 6 AM on I-35 in Belton, Texas. The SUV seems to have rolled over on the southbound I-35 frontage road near the Shanklin Road exit. The driver of the SUV died from his injuries at the accident site. The cause of the accident is not yet known.

Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victims' families of these accidents. We imagine that they may have been deeply affected by these accidents. We understand that they may have many questions. We wonder if the Scholar accident could trigger a wrongful death claim. We know that the Scholar family and others who have lost loved ones in tragic vehicle accidents could benefit from hiring a lawyer. A personal injury attorney can help the family of victims understand their options and legal rights.
