Austin College Student Dies Following Central Texas Motorcycle Crash
According to a KWTX.com news report, a 25-year-old college student from Austin recently succumbed to injuries he sustained in a motorcycle accident near Waco, TX. The motorcycle crash took place the day after Thanksgiving around 8 p.m. when the 25-year-old was riding a 2008 Yamaha motorcycle west on State Highway 31 near Farm-to-Market Road 2311. A Department of Public Safety trooper reports that the motorcycle collided with a 2005 Jeep Cherokee, which was driven by a resident of West.
The Jeep Cherokee was reportedly driving northbound on FM2311.
The 25-year-old was flown by helicopter ambulance to Scott & White Hospital in Temple immediately after the November 23 accident, where he remained until he was taken off life support recently and unfortunately died. The driver of the Cherokee was not injured in the collision. According to the Department of Public Safety trooper, the young college student was not wearing a helmet.
Any Texas traffic accident has the potential to have catastrophic consequences, but a motorcycle accident in particular can result in very severe and life-threatening injuries to a rider and his or her passenger because of the lack of protection these two-wheeled vehicles offer.
