Auto collisions can be a very serious matter. Such accidents can sometimes even result in a fatality. Thus, it is very important for motorists to not engage in conduct which could cause such accidents to occur.
One type of conduct that can cause motor vehicle collisions is not exercising appropriate care when making left turns. Thus, one hopes that all motor vehicle drivers make sure to be careful and attentive when performing such turns.
Earlier this week, a fatal auto collision occurred in Texas that involved a left turn.
The accident happened on Thursday near Willis. Early that evening, a car was travelling east along FM 1097. Reportedly, the car then attempted to turn left onto an intersecting road. According to authorities, during this turn attempt, the car failed to yield to a westbound motorcycle and a collision occurred between the car and the motorcycle. The driver of the car reportedly has said that he did not see the motorcycle prior to the collision.
The article on the Courier of Montgomery County’s website which reported this story did not mention if charges have been or are expected to be brought against the car’s driver in connection to the accident.
The operator of the motorcycle (a 55-year-old man) was killed in this auto collision. The accident also caused a passenger of the motorcycle (a 56-year-old woman) to suffer severe injuries. The woman was taken to a hospital in the area after the crash. As of Thursday, the woman was in critical condition.
