Jalal Alasadi Killed in Motorcycle Accident on Grand Parkway in Montgomery County, TX

Montgomery County, TX -- April 14, 2022, 30-year-old Jalal Alasadi was killed in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident on the Grand Parkway in east Montgomery County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 10:00 p.m. along the Grand Parkway (feeder road of State Highway 99) near Valley Ranch Parkway. Preliminary investigation suggests Alasadi was riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle west on the feeder road at alleged high speeds. He reportedly tried to pass another vehicle on the right shoulder when the bike may have clipped a nearby wall. He then lost control and traveled through the westbound lanes, then hit a curb and was ejected when the bike overturned.

Alasadi, allegedly not wearing a helmet at the time, suffered fatal injuries in the accident.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Jalal Alasadi Accident on Grand Pkwy in Montgomery County

UPDATE (July 15, 2022): Later reports indicate the victim of this crash had a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .125 at the time. I say that with no judgment, but confirmation that he was over the legal limit for intoxication may mean there's more to investigate.

As I briefly mentioned before, Texas dram shop law holds businesses that over-serve alcohol responsible for the damage their intoxicated patrons cause or suffer. Not every DWI crash starts with a law-breaking bar, but finding out where the drinks came from is an important and often-neglected step when helping victims get back on their feet.

Unfortunately that part of the investigation generally gets little attention from police. If it's suspected that a bar broke the law with over-service then it's usually best to seek help from people who know how to prove that. Armed with receipts, witness statements, video footage, and other evidence, many victims and families hurt by reckless over-service have held bad businesses accountable for the damage they helped do.

ORIGINAL: Some folks may read the few details of this crash and decide for themselves without further evidence what happened. After seeing a single-vehicle wreck people are sometimes content to blame one or more of the most common factors, like operator fatigue or distraction. More cynical readers might even try to blame impairment, though not a word was said about that in the limited information of news releases. If evidence of that was discovered it would also be important to find out where the drinks came from in case a bar violated dram shop law and would then be potentially responsible for the victim's fatal injuries.

However, I want to be wholly clear that I'm not saying alcohol was involved. It's a common enough factor that police may look into it as a matter of procedure if nothing else, but no doubt it would only be a single possibility of many they should look at. There are also less-common but still important factors to consider like vehicular failures, hazardous road or weather conditions, or even other vehicles involved in the crash that just left the area without stopping. For instance reports mentioned the rider may have lost control while attempting a passing maneuver; did the driver of the vehicle he tried to pass remain at the scene?

Until all the facts are obtained through a thorough reconstruction of the scene and seeking out any additional sources of information like security camera footage or eyewitness accounts, it's important to be patient and not jump to conclusions. At the very least, the victim's loved ones deserve to know that all care was taken to discover the truth of what caused their tragic loss.
