One Injured in Motorcycle Accident at Loop 323 and Easy Street in Tyler, Texas

TYLER, TX — One person was taken to the hospital after a major motorcycle accident that happened in Tyler, Texas on Thursday, March 12th, 2015. News articles from the area said that the accident took place at about 1:40 Thursday afternoon.

Authorities think that one person was hurt when the motorcycle they were driving and a car collided while driving at the intersection of Loop 323 and Easy Street. The motorcycle is believed to have struck the back of a car that had slowed for a turn.

The motorcycle was thrown from the vehicle and was taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries.

The investigation is currently underway at this time, and police hope to release more information in the coming days.

Scene of the Accident

View of the Road


News reports said that the driver of the motorcycle may have been speeding, but these are based on witness accounts, and there may be a few phenomena at work here. First of all, a motorcycle driving at 45 miles per hour, and a massive tractor-trailer driving at the same speed are going to look like they’re driving at two completely different speeds, due to the disparity in size. Additionally, a loud vehicle like a motorcycle is going to seem like it is going a lot faster than a near-silent hybrid vehicle due to the noise output. Many people have a negative view of motorcyclists, and assume that they are all reckless and dangerous, and I call this motorcycle bias, which, unfortunately, police and accident investigators are not immune to. If this accident isn’t getting the fair shake it deserves due to such a slanted view, and independent investigation can be conducted by victims to clear the air, and possibly their name.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
