College Station, TX -- May 20, 2022, one person was killed in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident off Highway 6 near Post Oak Mall in College Station.

Reports haven't released much information about the crash aside from saying it happened early Friday morning on the southbound feeder of Highway 6 between the mall and Grand Station. The rider was allegedly traveling south when he lost control for unknown reasons and crashed into the guardrail over Wolf Pen Creek. The rider was ejected and suffered fatal injuries.

The investigation is ongoing. No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Benjamin Hamilton Jr. Accident off Highway 6 in College Station

It isn't entirely clear what happened here, and I can only hope experienced and careful investigators are handling things. Even the eventual reports from police may not be enough to say what really occurred.

For instance, one possible challenge to consider after a crash like this is the negative opinion a lot of people have about motorcyclists. This can lead them to jump to conclusions and blame a rider for a crash without waiting for pesky things like complete investigations or evidence. Unfortunately even the police sometimes fall victim to those prejudices, which is another reason I almost always rely on independent investigators who let only the facts do the talking.

At the very least any family affected by a tragedy like this deserves some real answers. Are proper steps being taken to get them?
