Motorcyclist Airlifted to Local Hospital Following Crash
News 10 is reporting that a motorcyclist collided with a sedan this past Saturday in Killeen.
KWTX said, "According to police, the motorcyclist was driving westbound when the driver of a Toyota Camry was attempting to make a left turn at the intersection of West Stan Schlueter Loop and Old FM 440. The motorcyclist was taken to Baylor Scott and White Hospital. No one was injured in the Camry."
Police did not comment any further on the incident. The investigation is still ongoing.
The Texas Department of Transportation has been pushing safety on the roads for motorcyclists with their "Share the Road Campaign".
The Texas Department of Transportation said, "On average, a motorcyclist dies in a crash on Texas roads every day. In 2017, 501 riders lost their lives and 2,101 were seriously injured in motorcycle crashes. About half of fatal motorcycle crashes result from a car or truck colliding with it, often because drivers simply don’t see it or misjudge how close it is and how fast it’s traveling."
