A Travis County sheriff’s deputy was injured last Monday when his
motorcycle was struck by a car northwest of Austin.
The crash occurred at Loop 360 and Waymaker Way while the deputy was following
another driver who was speeding. During the pursuit, a Range Rover SUV
pulled out in front of the motorcycle and the two vehicles collided.
Initially, the deputy was taken to the University Medical Center Brackenridge
with reports of life-threatening injuries. Now, however, he is expected
to make a full recovery.
The driver of the Range Rover sustained no injuries.
Here at the Kyle Law Firm, we’re thankful this accident didn’t
turn into a tragedy. And we’d like to take this opportunity to remind
everyone to drive safely this holiday season. For motorcyclists that means
obeying traffic laws, wearing a helmet and keeping an extra careful eye
out for distracted drivers.
For cars that means staying focused on the road, maintaining a safe speed
and taking special precautions around motorcyclists. It’s very easy
to misjudge the speed of a motorcycle, so be sure to give them lots of room.
