A motorcycle accident Friday evening at the intersection of Avenue O and 51st Street seriously injured an unidentified man according to the Galveston Police Department. The accident happened shortly after 8 p.m. when the rider suffered multiple fractures.
He was taken to University of Texas Medical Branch in unknown condition. It is not known if there were any other vehicles involved. A cause for the crash has not been determined.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycles are more likely to be involved in a fatal collision with a fixed object than are other vehicles. In 2008, 25 percent of the motorcycles involved in fatal crashes collided with fixed objects, compared to 19 percent for passenger cars, 14 percent for light trucks, and 4 percent for large trucks.
Seeing a copy of the Texas accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Texas Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Texas accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
