Biker Down on Main and Harris
SAN ANGELO, TX — A motorcyclist was rushed to Shannon Medical Center with incapacitating injuries at approximately 2:30 p.m. The motorcyclist was hurt in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of E. Harris Ave. and N. Main St.
According to San Angelo Police Department Traffic Investigator Brian Bylsma, a driver of a 2012 Honda Civic was southbound on Main attempting to turn left onto E. Harris. At the same time, another vehicle was facing northbound attempting to turn west on E. Harris.
The northbound vehicle waiting to turn left obscured the Civic driver’s view of the northbound motorcycle in the outside lane. When the Civic driver turned, the motorcycle operator didn’t have time to avoid colliding with the Civic. The motorcyclist hit the rear, right quarter panel of the Civic.
The motorcyclist appeared to have a broken arm and road rash. The driver of the Honda Civic was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way when making a left turn.
Bylsma said he saw no evidence of the motorcyclist wearing a helmet.
