Two Injured In Texarkana Accident, Believed To Be Hit And Run
One of the most common ways a motorcyclist gets into accidents is when someone turns left in front of them. Usually, the car isn’t paying attention for smaller vehicles and makes the turn without looking. Two people in Texarkana found themselves in this situation last Saturday.
What they didn’t expect was for the car to drive away and leave them injured on the street. KTBS reported that a man and his daughter were riding a motorcycle on New Boston Road when a Honda Pilot made a left directly in front of them.
The crash hit the rear passenger door with enough force for the airbag to deploy. Witnesses say that the driver of the car, an early 40s Hispanic man, got out to see the damage. However, he jumped back into his car and went north on Milam.
Both the riders were taken to the hospital with broken bones and lacerations. The daughter, a 15-year-old girl, had to be airlifted to Dallas. Both are expected to survive.
Police are looking for the Pilot’s driver. The car has older Texas plates and is between model years of 2009-2015, plus the aforementioned damage. Call Texarkana Area Crime Stoppers if you have any information.
We wish full healing to the two injured riders, and hope that the driver can be caught to face justice and possible civil charges.
