    Driver arrested after car veers into motorcycle, hurting 2
    Published October 20, 2015
    Associated Press







    A 68-year-old man accused of veering his car into a motorcycle, injuring both of its riders, has been arrested on aggravated assault charges.

    William Crum of Granbury was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Hood County District Attorney Rob Christian said Crum would remain in custody pending a bond hearing Tuesday. He didn't know whether Crum has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

    Each count carries a punishment of two to 20 years in prison if convicted.

    The crash happened Saturday on a two-lane road about 5 miles north of Granbury. Eric Sanders, the driver of the motorcycle, contends the car's driver swerved intentionally. He suffered abrasions, and his girlfriend was taken to a Fort Worth hospital with a broken wrist and deep arm lacerations.

    remember when people would go for the sunday drive?

    it seems like driving has now become some death match or some shit
    people race to stop signs to get there before the guy coming from the other direction
    they clearly cut each other off
    they clearly race each other

    people are insane when they get into a car now--and some of you people probably gotta admit I just described you

    if you're one of these people can I ask you do you ever ask yourself what the fuck is wrong with yourself?


    and bike riders do stupid shit---I get it--they're likely insanely fun--they can do what a car can't
    but you roll the dice enough and sooner or later

    in case you're wondering I drive like a little old lady
    and it bothers people to no end

    This used to happen to me a lot in the Keys, it's always an old guy
    They own the road and are angry that they're insurance goes up because they drive like this and their vision sucks
    Hard to watch, very lucky

    A real bastard. I can only imagine the fucking anger I would have for what is an intentional act. I have a few road scars from my bike days but at least those were my own doing. That chick may have long lasting scars as well.

    Now I don't condone those a-holes bikers who think they own the road either, overtakes on solid double lines and buzzes by so fast that they scare the beejesus out of you and your napping kids. But damn, what the old foggy does is unthinkable.

    It's a good think both of them have helmets and landed on soft ground.

    Dude shouldn't have been passing on a solid line, but old asshole will hopefully die in prison.
    The camera evidence will sink the old guy, he's done.

    I speed. I do 80 on freeways, and I expect people to at least do the speed limits on streets and roads. I prefer to drive at least 45 on roadways. The one place I won't speed is in subdivisions and neighborhoods. Speeding in these areas does nothing but create danger and doesn't shorten a commute as there are too many stops.

    I've observed too many assholes driving "crotch rockets" around town to have a lot of sympathy for the guys on the bike. I know that sounds bad but it's true. Weaving in and out of highway traffic doing 100+ Mph, driving on the shoulder or in between stopped traffic during a traffic jam. Even in this video, the asshole is passing on a double yellow line. Sometime in the last 10-15 years, it seemed that buying one of those bikes gives you a ticket to disregard the law and drive like a fuckwad

    Glad the people involved in the crash were okay, and the guy deserved to be prosecuted, but I would be lying if I said my first reaction was "good"

    The fuck in the car might as well have take. A shot at them. What he did was every bit as dangerous as shooting a weapon. How bothered could he have been by them passing him? They didn't put him in danger. I do hate bikes that think they can do as they please but that kind of riding will catch up with them eventually. Recklessness always catches up to riders. No need to try to kill them.

    Other thoughts I have on this incident. The moron old man crucified himself with zero remorse. His goose is cooked. However, I'd cite the moron who was on the bike for reckless driving and crossing a double yellow. I'd even go as far as giving him reckless endangerment for willfully putting that girl in harm's way with his riding. And even though I commend the second rider for his restraint (I would have knocked the old man's teeth out), he too was passing illegally. You hear him gunning it to pass as well. Three wrongs don't make a right.

    And at 90 mph, what were both motorcycles planning on doing if there was oncoming traffic over that blind little hill?

    Because he was a dickhead driver on a bike, But I'd rather see a car hit them head on then for a car to go out of its way to hurt them.

    Appears to be a clean hit. Biker was illegally passing and being an asshole.

    Not to mention the driver stopped which goes above and beyond what is required when dealing with assholes on motorcycles.
