Negligent Pickup Driver Kills Biker
At about 3:00 pm on Sunday, October 4th a man driving a pickup turned out of a parking lot and onto the street in the 18500 block of Kuykendahl Road near Louetta Road in northwest Harris County right in front of an approaching motorcycle. The adult male biker tried to stop, but slammed into the side of the pickup and was killed on impact. According to Harris County Sheriff’s deputies on the scene, this collision was a “text book” example of a driver failing to properly yield the right of way, as vehicles pulling out of parking lots must yield to approaching vehicles on the public pavement onto which they are turning. That obviously didn’t happen here. This collision is being investigated by the Sheriff’s Violent Crimes Unit and criminal charges may issue once that investigation has been completed.
