It’s the time of year that people like to take their motorcycles out on the road. It’s warmer out and, with the COVID-19 keeping people in their homes, this is one way to get out of the house. The thing is, motorcycles can be dangerous if people aren’t careful. When police respond to the scene of a motorcycle crash, they usually find serious injuries and way too many fatalities. This was the scene at a motorcycle crash in Galveston, Texas this week.
The Galveston police responded to a crash reported on the Galveston Causeway overpass. It happened near Harborside Drive. A man in his 50s was riding his motorcycle and may have lost control of his bike. It took the police quite some time to realize who the man was. His injuries were so serious that it was very difficult to identify him. Sadly, by the time police and rescue crews arrived at the scene, the victim had passed away from his injuries. They may be waiting to notify the man’s next of kin before they release his name.
The police are still investigating the crash. No other vehicles were involved in the accident. Thankfully, there were no other people on the bike with the man. So far, there has been no indication that the man was high on drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident. However, toxicology reports will likely be run to confirm this either way. They may also check to see if he was suffering from any sort of medical condition prior to the crash.
