Killeen Motorcyclist Killed in Stan Schleuter Accident
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 22-Jul-2013
A Killeen motorcycle accident on Stan Schlueter left a rider dead last week when a passenger vehicle collided with the bike, officials said.
KPD identified the motorcyclist who was killed as 37-year-old Simon Nevarez. He was riding a Honda motorcycle at the time of the crash, police said.
According to police, the vehicle that struck Nevarez was making a left turn at the time of the Killeen accident. That vehicle was identified as a Mitsubishi Eclipse. Police believe the driver of another vehicle, identified as a Ford pickup truck, waved the Mitsubishi across the lanes of traffic prior to the crash.
Navarez was transported to Carl R. Darnell Medical Center, where he later passed away as a result of injuries he suffered. A Jeep SUV was also involved in the crash. Police did not release whether other parties were injured or received treatment as a result.
As summer heats up and more cyclists fill the roadways and interstates to travel and enjoy the warmer temperatures, paying close attention to surrounding vehicles and motorcycles is vital to protecting oneself and safe guarding others from serious injuries caused by motorcycle-auto collisions.
Although riders can take action to protect themselves from serious injuries associated with accidents, it’s important that drivers of larger passenger cars and trucks pay close attention to motorcyclists. With lacking protection and a smaller size that can make it difficult to see them, even seconds with one’s eyes away from the road can be deadly when motorcycles and automobiles are involved.
