There were a couple of lucky motorcyclists over the weekend, who could have been killed but were not seriously injured in collisions.
On Friday night, a woman was pulling out of the Valero gas station on FM 1485 at Old Houston when she was struck by a motorcycle. The bike stuck in the front wheel area without falling over or ejecting the driver, who sustained only a minor leg injury.
The second incident occurred Sunday afternoon on US 59 at Roman Forest, when a Honda Goldwing motorcycle slammed on it’s brakes in front of a log truck from Cleveland. The truck struck the motorcycle in the rear, causing it to veer to the left, striking a car in the left lane, and then bouncing back to the right. The driver was conscious and talking when he was loaded into an ambulance.
