Rose City, TX (11/12/2020) – A two-vehicle wreck on Interstate 10 left one motorcyclist injured Thursday morning.
The accident happened around 8:15 a.m. near mile marker 858 on I-10. A Ford pickup truck headed southbound on the interstate was followed by a 2004 Honda motorcycle in the left lane. The rider of the motorcycle saw traffic and began to move into the right lane. That’s when the Ford pulled out in front of him and struck the motorcycle.
The motorcyclist, 36-year-old Joseph Perry, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The driver of the Ford, 22-year-old Hector Robles, was not injured. He was issued a citation for an unsafe lane change.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
