Potter County, TX (7/3/2021) – A man is dead and another was seriously hurt after a motorcycle and a bicycle collided with each other Saturday morning in Amarillo.
The accident happened around 9 a.m. on Patrick Pass when a Honda Goldwing driven by 79-year-old Ronald Archer failed to yield the right-of-way and crashed into a 68-year-old Harold Brigance riding a Cannondale bicycle. Both riders were ejected.
Archer was taken to the local hospital with serious injuries, where he later died on Monday.
Brigance was also taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
Failure to Yield Accidents
Failure to yield is among the leading cause of roadway accidents in Texas. Some drivers simply fail to give their full attention while driving, and others consider themselves above the law. Regardless of why the failure occurred, everyone is obligated to yield the right-of-way by following official traffic signs and signals and adhering to the rules of the road.
Suffering a death after a failure to yield accident is overwhelming due to the mental anguish and financial burden that follows. Knowing what qualifies as negligence and how to build a strong case may be even more demanding. Fortunately, the failure to yield accident lawyers Sutliff & Stout do this every day.
