Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In Texas, approximately 520 people lost their lives as a result of motorcycle accidents. This amount is equal to roughly 12% of all fatal accidents reported interstate each year. In many cases, motorcyclists end up losing their lives as a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions.
One of the most common and dangerous situations motorcyclists face is when a driver turns in front of them. This type of crash is often deadly, as the motorcycle lacks the same protection as a car, and the rider can be ejected from the bike. Drivers who fail to yield to oncoming motorcycles or turn without checking for them first are putting riders at serious risk.
