Motorcyclist Killed in SUV Crash
A Houston man riding a motorcycle was killed upon impact in a collision with an SUV on West Little York near Arbor Oak Drive in northwest Houston around 6:30 pm on Wednesday, February 14th, Valentine’s Day, even though the deceased was wearing a helmet and was not speeding. According to HPD officers on the scene, the SUV’s driver pulled out right in front of the motorcycle suddenly, leaving its rider no chance to brake or veer sufficiently to avoid the collision. The SUV’s driver was unhurt in the collision, but investigation continues regarding the tragedy. As of press time, there was no information available as to whether the SUV’s driver will be ticketed or criminally charged in the incident.
In a collision between vehicles of such disparate size, the driver of the smaller vehicle is at a huge safety disadvantage. Motorcycles are very fun to ride, but sadly they offer zero protection in crashes. Unfortunately, this rider was doing everything correctly and still died.
