GRANBURY, Texas — Authorities are investigating after a car veered into a motorcycle on a rural North Texas road, an incident captured on video that left two people injured.
Eric Sanders, the driver of the motorcycle, contends the car’s driver swerved intentionally. He suffered abrasions in the collision that left his girlfriend in a Fort Worth hospital with a broken wrist and deep arm lacerations.
Sanders said the crash happened Saturday afternoon on a two-lane county road about 5 miles north of Granbury. A video shows the motorcycle passing a car, which then veers left over a double yellow center line, upsetting the motorcycle and sending the riders into the roadway.
Dub Gillum, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, says the agency has seen the video. He says that the investigating trooper will meet with prosecutors Monday and that the car’s driver could face felony charges.
Another motorcyclist, who captured the accident on his helmet cam, confronted the driver. He can be heard on the video saying “I don’t care” when asked what he was doing when he hit the motorcyclist.
