Houston, TX - Fatal Motorcycle Accident Takes 1 Life on Hwy 90 exit ramp off East Fwy

When it comes to motorcycle accidents that take place in Houston, motorcyclists are five times more likely to suffer critical injuries than the occupants of the other vehicle involved in the crash. This information is based on recent statistics gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration concerning traffic accidents in Houston. Even the most mindful and careful motorcyclists are much more likely to sustain severe injuries during an accident as opposed to someone inside of a truck or car. 

Given that motorcyclists are totally unprotected while riding their bikes in the event of an accident, for example, from other vehicles and the asphalt, the injuries they endure are often severe or even fatal. This is one of the most important reasons for motorcyclists to wear helmets at all times. Motorcycle accidents in Houston occur more often than motorcycle accidents in nearly any other state in the nation.
