Cherokee County, TX (8/21/2021) – A man was killed after being involved in a two-vehicle wreck with a motorcycle Saturday afternoon.
The accident happened on FM 1910 around 2 p.m. near Jacksonville. A Chevrolet pickup truck towing a gooseneck trailer failed to yield the right-of-way while turning west and blocked traffic. That’s when a Harley Davidson Sportster headed east was unable to stop and collided with the trailer.
The motorcyclist, David May, was taken to the hospital, where he later died the next day.
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.
In the case above, a failure to yield accident led to the untimely death of a motorcyclist. At Sutliff & Stout, we fight for motorcycle accident victims to get the compensation that they deserve.
