Midland, TX (March 15, 2023) – A man has been charged in connection with a motorcycle accident in the Midland area reported on Saturday, March 11. 

The crash took place at the 2900 block of Rankin Highway as a southbound motorcyclist slowed down to make a turn. The bike was rear-ended by a car driven by 27-year-old Jonathan Emilio Chavez-Villanueva. The impact caused the rider to be ejected, and Chavez-Villanueva fled the scene. 

The driver later hit a mailbox not far from the crash site, and he was apprehended by authorities. He showed signs of intoxication and was taken into custody. 

The motorcyclist was injured and hospitalized. No updates on their condition have been provided. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is in progress.  

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.

Motorcycle Accidents in Texas

Midland, TX - Man Charged in Motorcycle Crash on Rankin HwyIt is not surprising that 500 people lose their lives and another 2,000 or so have serious injuries in motorcycle accidents in Texas each year, given that the state has more than 300,000 registered motorcycles. Severe injuries are also more prevalent for motorcyclists because of their exposure to elements outside of the vehicle. In dire situations, a rider’s person could sustain permanent damage. In reality, motorcycle accidents cause a disproportionately high number of traffic fatalities.

A car crash can take place at almost any time. Although no one ever wants to get in a car accident, they, unfortunately, happen far too frequently to Texas residents.
