A Springtown woman was tragically killed Monday after the motorcycle on which she was riding was struck in Palo Pinto County by a truck.
Linda White, 55, was a passenger on a 2001 Harley Davidson traveling east on FM 1148 near Graham.The motorcycle’s driver, who was speeding, lost control at a curve, slid into the other lane and was hit by a 2005 Dodge traveling in the opposite direction.
My prayers go out to the surviving family.
I am only repeating what was published in the newspaper to remind motorcyclists to slow down and exercise caution when they are riding. One momentary lapse of concentration is sometimes all it takes.
Unfortunately, over the last 30 years, I have had to represent many people who have either been seriously injured or have had a family member pass away in a one vehicle collision just like this one. And I have handled my share of motorcycle crashes – and am now afraid to ride my bike on the road when I want to get some exercise.
This story reminded me of a case I just concluded where a wonderful young woman, Bethany, was a passenger in a car that crashed head-on into a tree. I was able to obtain all of the insurance proceeds that were available from several policies, then reduce the outstanding medical bill lien held by her family’s insurance company to zero Please click here to see video, read about Bethany’s story – especially what an amazing job our JPS Hospital did to save her life..
