Reports coming out of Harris County state that Kyle Dawkins was killed in a drunk driving motorcycle accident. According to law enforcement, the accident occurred on East Freeway near Beltway 8. William Scott was driving east on the highway when he rear-ended Dawkins’s motorcycle. Police believe that Scott was intoxicated while driving and he will be charged with intoxication manslaughter.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the victim’s family, who we imagine have been deeply affected by this tragedy. We wonder if this case could trigger a wrongful death claim. We encourage families who have experienced similar situations to contact a personal injury attorney who may be able to clarify their rights and options. Driving while intoxicated is incredibly dangerous because the risk for colliding with another vehicle is much higher.
Motorcycle accidents are not uncommon in Texas.
Reports coming out of San Antonio, Texas state that two people were grievously injured in a motorcycle accident in San Antonio. According to law enforcement, the accident occurred at about 12:30 PM at Loop 1604 and Marbach Road. The motorcycle hit a curb, which caused the driver and his passenger to become airborne. They were seriously injured and subsequently hospitalized. Police believe that the reason why the motorcycle hit a curb is because the driver was attempting to switch lanes and did not notice that the lane turned into a subdivision. We sincerely hope that those that are hospitalized have speedy recoveries.
