Child Dies in Dirt Bike Accident at Town & Country RV Park in Bridge City, TX

Bridge City, TX -- June 5, 2022, a child on an electric dirt bike was struck and killed by a vehicle on Lapointe Street in Bridge City.

According to reports the incident happened around 4:55 p.m. inside the Town & Country RV Park located at 862 Lapointe Street. Preliminary investigation suggests a 5-year-old girl was riding a small battery-powered dirt bike when she was hit in the roadway by a GMC pickup as it left the RV park.

The child was transported to a local hospital where she died a short time later. No other injuries were reported.

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

Commentary on Dirt Bike Accident at RV Park in Bridge City

It's not entirely clear what happened here, but surely all would agree that a child losing her life warrants every effort to find answers for her grieving family.

As tragic as it is, sometimes a driver simply has no way to avoid hitting someone that crosses their path. Reports mentioned the dirt bike traveled into the pickup's way just before the collision, so perhaps this is one of those times. However, on other occasions someone really isn't paying enough attention to their surroundings, assuming their path is clear while they send a text or adjust their GPS.

Having said that, I am pointing no fingers. I'm only suggesting it's important not to jump to any conclusions as investigators work diligently to find more information. At the very least they deserve every available answer about their loss. If there are any other steps to take, knowing so depends mostly on what those answers turn out to be.
