Brian Kee Killed in Motorcycle Accident on McCart Ave in Fort Worth, TX

UPDATE (July 15, 2022): Sources have identified the victim of this accident as 48-year-old Brian Allen Kee.

Fort Worth, TX — July 4, 2022, a motorcyclist died in a late-night collision with an SUV on McCart Avenue in Fort Worth.

According to reports the incident happened around 11:30 p.m. on McCart at Duringer Road, south of Interstate 20. Preliminary investigation and witness statements suggest a BMW motorcycle was traveling south on McCart at alleged high speeds when it approached the Duringer intersection. Nearby, a Ford Escape stopped on eastbound Duringer at the intersection then proceeded to turn toward northbound McCart. The SUV entered the path of the southbound motorcycle, which had the right-of-way, and the two collided.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. None of the SUV's four teenaged occupants were hurt.

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

Commentary on Brian Kee Accident on McCart Ave in Fort Worth

Motorcyclists don't always get a fair shake from the public or even from police when they get in crashes. Folks sometimes think they're all reckless daredevils because any time the news brings one up they're doing something dangerous (like speeding, as witnesses said the victim did on McCart).

Some riders take risks, but many others are perfectly safe as they travel. In some cases they're actually more cautious than car or truck drivers because they know they don't have airbags or seat belts to protect them in a wreck. Unfortunately, the safe riders are typically lumped in with the risk-takers and people tend to pin the blame for a motorcycle crash on the motorcyclist regardless of the context.

That's what's so troubling about these accidents: All eyes tend to focus on the rider even when someone else's actions clearly need scrutiny as well. Reports say the motorcycle was speeding and make little to no mention of the other driver's failure to yield. Is is possible the rider was speeding? Of course, but he also didn't have to stop at that crossroads. Should the other driver maybe be held accountable for suddenly rolling a roadblock into his way? Only further careful investigation could say for sure, but I don't think it's prudent to dismiss that clear contributing factor just because one vehicle had only two wheels.

That's why it's so important to investigate carefully instead of taking limited first reports as gospel truth. At the very least the victim's loved ones deserve to know proper care was taken in search of answers. Will they get them here?
