Christopher Edward Crawford Jr. Killed in Motorcycle Accident in Levelland, TX

Levelland, TX — June 26, 2023, Christopher Crawford Jr. was fatally injured following a motorcycle accident at around 9:45 p.m. along 13th Street.

Investigators said in their statements on the crash that it happened near the intersection of 13th Street and E Avenue.

According to authorities, 32-year-old Christopher Crawford Jr. was on a Honda motorcycle which was reportedly going westbound along 13th Street. Ahead at a private drive coming from Lobo Lake, authorities say a southbound Jeep Grand Cherokee failed to yield to the motorcycle, resulting in a collision.

Crawford was thrown from the bike and sustained injuries which proved to be fatal. The other driver had no reported injuries. According to authorities, there are witnesses who supposedly saw the Jeep fail to yield. That witness testimony can be crucial in situations like this. I've handled many motorcycle wrecks where insurance companies tried to blame the motorcyclist for being reckless because they know a lot of folks out there are already biased against motorcyclists. Those defenses don't hold much water when met with clear evidence, though.

Motorcyclists have it tough enough on our roads without that sort of bias. Hopefully authorities have a clear enough picture of what happened here that no one is able to unfairly shift the narrative.
