Catastrophic Injuries to Unsuspecting Victims
According to a news report, a 68-year old man is facing two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he veered his vehicle into a motorcycle on a rural North Texas road, causing two people to be thrown off and suffer injuries. The accident, which was caught on video, occurred as the driver of the motorcycle attempted to pass the man’s car on a two-lane county road. Just as the motorcycle began to overtake the car, the 68-year old swerved into it.
The motorcycle driver alleges the man intentionally swerved into the motorcycle. He suffered scuffs in the collision while his girlfriend was taken to a Fort Worth hospital after suffering a broken wrist and deep arm cuts.
The video of the accident, taken by the motorcyclist’s friend, shows the 68-year-old saying he didn’t care about causing the accident and then claiming he was stung by something that caused him to swerve. The man was arrested, charged and set with a $75,000 bond for each aggravated assault charge.
