Commentary on Motorcycle Accident on FM 149 in Montgomery County
When it comes to crashes like this, an important step forward is often just ensuring authorities actually gave the details enough attention. I begin to count how many times families came to me about a motorcycle wreck only for us to find authorities barely did any work. People often just assume the motorcyclist was being reckless and miss crucial details that can show otherwise. Were there mechanical issues? A tire blowout? Hazards in the road? Do improvements need to be made to this roadway? Was there another reckless driver involved that left the scene? Likely or not, all factors should get consideration after a deadly wreck. That's as true for a motorcyclist as it is anyone else.
