Robert Smith Killed in Alleged DWI Accident in Hunt County, TX

Hunt County, TX -- February 12, 2023, Robert Smith was killed following an accident possibly involving an intoxicated driver.

Investigators said that the incident happened at around 7:42 p.m. at the intersection of FM 751 and FM 429. Details suggest that 29 year-old Robert Smith was on a motorcycle traveling southbound. At the intersection, it appears a Chevy Trailblazer failed to yield, crashing into Smith's vehicle.

Smith sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision. The other driver was apparently arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Authorities did not give any additional information.

If these allegations are true, then it's just a shame to see intoxicated driving take yet another life on Texas roads. Motorcyclists have enough to worry about without also having to be on the lookout for people on drugs or alcohol. My hope is that authorities are doing everything in their power to get answers for this man's grieving loved ones. Who the intoxicated driver was, whether they were on drugs or alcohol, if they've been in trouble for this kind of thing before, whether or not a local establishment illegally over-served that driver, and even whether or not aspects of the intersection itself may have contributed to the crash (lack of signage, poor lighting, that sort of thing).

Put simply, this family had a lifetime with their loved one stolen from them. The absolute least they deserve is some answers.
