Early this morning, a driver going the wrong direction on a divided six-lane street crashed into a motorcycle. The accident occurred on Robert B. Cullum Boulevard, north of Grand Avenue. The motorcyclist was taken by ambulance to the hospital. The driver was given a field sobriety test and failed and is expected to face criminal charges later today. The driver may have also been involved in another recent crash, because his vehicle had damage not related to the accident with the motorcycle.
Drunk drivers are a danger to everyone on the roads. This tragic accident could most likely have been avoided if the vehicle’s driver had chosen to call a cab, used a designated driver, or waited until sober to drive. Now, the driver faces criminal charges and the motorcyclist is recovering in the hospital.
