Motorcycle Escort Killed in Accident During Procession; Motorcycle Lawyers Texas
While Texas police officers realize that their job comes with inherent dangers, being a Texas motorcycle officer adds yet another level of danger. On Monday, December 20, Harker Heights Police Officer Andrew Rameas died when his motorcycle hit an SUV. The Ford Expedition turned into the path of a funeral procession that Officer Rameas was escorting in Kileen, TX. Officer Rameas was thrown from his bike upon impact. While CPR was administered onsite, the Texas motorcycle cop was pronounced dead at a local area hospital.
According to a brochure put out by NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Association) and Motorcycle Safety Association, approximately 80 percent of reported motorcycle crashes result in death or injury, while a comparable figure for automobiles is only 20 percent. One of the main reasons motorcyclists are killed in crashes is because the motorcycle itself provides virtually no protection. Being thrown from the vehicle is more common with motorcycles and head trauma represents one of the most common injuries sustained by Texas motorcyclists. Even though wearing a motorcycle helmet does decrease the chance of sustaining a serious and life-threatening head injury, motorcycle helmets are only required for riders 20 and younger in the state of Texas.
Even when a rider has undergone training and has years of experience, motorcycle accidents are sometimes impossible to avoid.
