Waco Man Injured in Motorcycle Accident on FM 2311 in McLennan County, TX

McLennan County, TX -- December 10, 2021, a Waco man sustained injuries due to an accident where his motorcycle crashed along FM 2311.

Preliminary reports indicated that the crash took place at around 5:15 p.m. along FM 2311 in the area of Kirkland Hill Road.

According to officials, a 58-year-old Waco man was driving a motorcycle along FM 2311 when the motorcycle went to the right and hit the guardrail. This caused the bike to fall over, ejecting the rider.

EMS said that the rider had incapacitating injuries due to the crash. Police say they found alcohol at the scene, but it cannot be confirmed at this time if alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Commentary on Motorcycle Accident on FM 2311 in McLennan County

There are two main issues I'd like to address here. One is the possibility of alcohol being a factor. Obviously, it's not even clear if the alcohol belonged to the victim, so folks shouldn't jump to conclusions. However, that possibility is always important to consider, especially if some local business illegally over-served the victim. This could then make that business liable under dram shop law for their role in the victim's injuries.

Beyond that, however, the other issue is how folks tend to treat motorcyclists. A lot of people just assume they're being reckless daredevils, so they jump to conclusions and figure the driver was being reckless. Without clear evidence, that's just irresponsible. Motorcyclists are just as susceptible as typical motorists--if not more so--to hazards they can't reasonably avoid. Tire blowouts, mechanical issues, road hazards, medical conditions--these are all factors worth considering, regardless of how likely they may or may not be.

The question remains, then, if steps are being taken to get answers here.
