Fastest Motorcyclist in the World Crashes in Texas

238 miles per hour is a pretty good clip for a small airplane. On a motorcycle, it’s insanely fast. Nevertheless, 238 miles per hour was exactly how fast Bill Warner, the current holder of the land speed record for motorcycles, was travelling when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed. Amazingly, Mr. Warner survived the accident, sustaining “just” four broken ribs, a collapsed lung, a lacerated liver, and extensive cuts and bruises on his body.

 

The risks associated with riding on a motorcycle are real. At the time of his accident, Mr. Warner was one of the most skilled, experienced riders in the country and was wearing the most cutting-edge safety gear. It didn’t matter to the pavement: losing control of his bike caused serious personal injury – and could have taken his life.

Amarillo Man Dies in Off-Road Accident

While it’s true that most Texas automobile accidents happen on the highway, off-roading can be dangerous. Tragically, last weekend an Amarillo family found out that off-road driving is sometimes fatal.

 

Kelly Bain and Randall Scott Rogers were travelling in a Polaris ATV on a ranch in the Texas panhandle on Saturday, tending deer, checking traps, and not thinking about the risks of off-road driving. Unfortunately, Bain, the driver, took a sharp turn and lost control of the ATV. Rogers, Bain’s passenger, was thrown from the vehicle and moments later, the vehicle landed on top of him, crushing him under its weight. Although Rogers was transported to a nearby hospital, his injuries killed him.

18-Wheelers Collide in Wheeler County

On Highway 152, a poorly maintained back road in Wheeler County, a sparsely populated area in the Texas panhandle, two 18-wheelers slammed into each other earlier this week. The results were tragic – and fatal. As the result of reckless driving, one driver was ejected from his cab, killing him. The other driver’s truck was thrown on its side and, sliding across the road, caught fire. Only by good luck was the man able to escape. His injures were non-life threatening, but he was sent to a local hospital.

 

Thousands of miles of Texas highways are poorly lit and falling into disrepair. The result is that wrecks are more common, including fatal accidents like the one in Wheeler County. Do you regularly travel on these highways? You should be careful!

School bus driver killed in accident with 18-wheeler

An 18-wheeler and a school bus collided early Monday morning, killing one and injuring two others. The deceased victim, Jerry Calvin Barnes, 64, was driving the Belton Independent School District bus when the accident occurred.

Department of Public Safety officials say that Barnes was driving the bus north on Briana Drive, west of Belton, when he pulled up to a stop sign. Barnes came to a complete stop, and then attempted to turn left onto FM 439 to travel west.

The 18-wheeler was headed east on FM 439 when it crashed into the left front corner of the bus. The 18-wheeler was traveling in the proper lane when the accident occurred. 

Barnes was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. A bus monitor, 48-year-old Wallace Lee Boshaw, also a BISD employee, suffered non-life threatening injuries, as did the driver of the 18-wheeler, 34-year-old Rodney Mitchell.
