Reports coming out of Corpus Christi, Texas state that a motorcyclist died in a vehicle accident. According to law enforcement, the accident occurred at about 10 PM on South Padre Island Drive East, near Airline Road. The accident involved not just the motorcycle but another car as well. Police believe that the motorcyclist was driving at too high speeds and collided with a Chevrolet Tahoe that was on the road. The motorcyclist hit the car with such a force that he sustained fatal injuries.
Vehicle accidents can occur to anyone and at any time. The mayor of San Antonio, Ivy Taylor, was recently involved in a car accident as well. According to law enforcement, the accident occurred at about 4:30 PM at the intersection between North Hackberry Street and East Houston Street. Police believe that Taylor’s Lincoln SUV and a Chrysler collided at the intersection. It is unclear as to whether who had right-of-way. In the Chrysler, there were three people. They were all taken to the hospital. One of the passengers is in critical condition, while the other two have less severe injuries. In the SUV along with Taylor, there were two officers, who seem to have not been hospitalized.
It is incredibly important to be careful when driving a vehicle. It is even more important when one is a motorcyclist because the risks for serious injuries and fatalities are much higher than if one is in a car. It is critical to be aware of other vehicles, especially on the highway or at intersections. It is important to remember the rules of the road, who has right-of-way and to not operate vehicles at a high speed.
