Aug 13, 2019 · LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - Two people were taken to the hospital after a wreck involving a motorcycle in Longview Tuesday. The wreck happened around 1 p.m. in the 200 block of East Loop 281. Police say a vehicle


Five pictures are available.
No, I'm not in them.
I'm in the ambulance.
On crutches, no apparent broken bones.
So sore, I'm gonna try to sleep in the chair.
She literally rocketed across the road, I'm guessing she had become impatient with trying to turn across Westbound traffic.  

Dunno why she was injured, unless she shat herself.
I hope the link works.
I had exactly Zero road rash..
No scraping on the clothes, just the helmet... don't make sense to me.. but I STOPPED from forty MPH. Somehow came to a halt about ten or fifteen feet from the bike, I have not had time to try to review the mental footage yet.
Nothing broken, a few really painful bruises and the left ankle won't take weight.
Why the driver needed hospital I just don't understand. She, I Thought was who dialed help. I was writhing in pain and couldn't look around or even start to ask questions.

Sure is glad you are mostly OK.   BUT, make sure you are checked out head to toe.  Sometimes you don't feel all the damage for a while.

Was that dent in your tank already there.. or did you smack it with something?  (Not gonna speculate on WHAT you smacked it with..)

P.S.  Looks like you bent the forks a bit...   Roll Eyes

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut between the seat and the handlebars. Make sure yours isn't too tight or too loose.

Dang JOG, glad you are OK.....but you did scratch up that nice left-side saddlebag I gave you...that's not nice.  Shocked


Let me know if you get to trying to repair/patch anything up on the old bike...I have a partial parts bike laying around.

Heal fast, the metal can be replaced. Glad nothing was broken, sprains are tough enough to heal at our age. Get back on that horse as soon as you can. We all are pulling for you.

Justin,
So glad that you appear to be more or less OK. Get checked out thoroughly buddy.

What injuries did the driver suffer, a bruise to her right ear from the cell phone?

We all live in fear of a cellphone driven by an SUV.
