Dawson Feutral Killed in Motorcycle Accident in Bowie County, TX
Bowie County, TX -- January 29, 2023, Dawson Feutral was killed in , following an accident where Feutral's bike crashed, then was hit by another motorcycle.
Preliminary details about the accidents say that the initial one occurred around 4:00 a.m., and the second one happened less than an hour later.
It appears that 22-year-old Dawson Feutral was on a Honda motorcycle traveling eastbound on FM 2148 near CR 2220. That vehicle somehow lost control and fell over, ejecting Feutral. Authorities believe that resulted in fatal injuries. A time later, an unidentified man on a Kawasaki came upon the scene reportedly looking for Feutral, who was a friend. That motorcycle hit the wrecked one, ejecting the Kawasaki rider. That rider was said to have incapacitating injuries.
At this time, more information is needed to confirm what exactly happened. People may come up with all kinds of possible explanations, but I for one just hope authorities have been as thorough and unbiased as possible.
Too many times, I have folks come to me with motorcycle wrecks where authorities just blamed the rider and assumed they were being reckless or outright didn't give the crash any attention whatsoever. Plenty of officers know how ridiculous that bias is, but negative assumptions about motorcyclists are common enough that mistakes still happen. Whatever happened here, it's best to let the evidence speak for itself, and it's best that evidence makes its way to the victims' loved ones as soon as possible.
