Kerrville, Texas (7/20/2020) – Three motorcyclists are dead and nine others were left injured after a head-on collision in Kerrville.

Three Motorcyclists Killed, Nine Others Injured

The accident happened on Highway 16 when members of the Thin Blue Line Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club were hit by a car head-on. 

According to deputies, three people were pronounced dead. The three victims have been identified as 79-year-old Jerry Wayne Harbour from Houston, Michael White from Chicago and Joseph Paglia from Chicago.

Nine other people were taken to the hospital in critical condition. 

The driver of the vehicle was arrested for several counts of intoxicated manslaughter and intoxicated assault.

Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.

According to Texas law, an Intoxication Assault involves a person who commits an offense if the person, by accident or mistake, operates a motor vehicle in a public place while intoxicated, by reason of that intoxication causes serious bodily injury to another. Serious bodily injury means an injury that creates a substantial risk of death or that causes serious permanent disfigurement or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ.

Because three people were killed, and the driver is seen to be negligent while behind the wheel, it’s important to seek legal assistance who handles cases of negligence and intoxication assault. An attorney can best represent you, negotiate settlements, and deal with insurance claims as you navigate your accident and personal injury recovery.
