Commentary on Motorcycle Accident on Seawall Boulevard in Galveston
It's not often one hears about mechanical issues causing a motorcycle wreck, but it isn't exactly unheard of. The challenge is that authorities rarely have the experience or equipment to look into something as complex and rare as that. It's one of the reasons that I ensure independent accident reconstructionists look into potentially challenging situations like the one possibly described here. Hopefully similar steps are being taken with this crash so there can be clear answers about what led to this rider's injuries.
