This past Saturday evening, a motorcyclist and a passenger were killed in a crash in Lewisville. The driver, Bradley Duane Kindheart was 44 years old at the time of the accident, and the passenger Angeline Davis Watson was 39. Witnesses told police that the bike was speeding and recklessly weaving through traffic. Around 8:53 pm, Kindheart lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a guardrail north of the Corporate Drive intersection of Interstate 35E.
Neither Kindheart nor Watson was wearing a helmet at the time of the motorcycle wreck. They both died at the scene.
Driving any type of motor vehicle can result in severe injuries and even death. Riding a motorcycle at high rates of speed without a helmet almost guarantees that when an accident would occur, death or serious life-altering injuries will occur as well.
Riding or driving safely involves utilizing any and all safety protection equipment. Whether it be a seatbelt, a fully functional airbag, or even a helmet, these are all designed to keep us safe in the event an accident should occur.
Ride and drive safely. Follow the laws that are put in place to prevent tragedies like this instance in Lewisville. While riding a motorcycle can be extremely fun, it can also be incredibly dangerous. Anything can go wrong at any moment. Don’t let the last moment you spend on this earth occur because you weren’t being safe.
