ACCIDENT ON HWY 3

About 30 mins ago, (6pm) I watched a guy on a Yamaha hit a large calf (200+ lbs) on Highway 3 (Old Galveston Rd) at Space City Blvd.

The rider was breathing and conscious but seriously hurt, he was geared up with helmet, jacket and all but not in good condition. It was already dark to the point that he could not have seen the calf until almost the point of impact.

EMS and a pumper was arriving when we left and there was enough bystanders trying to help out.

I'm not sure what kind of Yamaha bike other than it was a dark "R" series, and I don't know the rider's name.

My prayers out to this guy and his family, I hope he recovers quickly.

Wow.... my worse fear is hitting a hog, cow or dog in the morning when it's still dark.

Hope he is OK.

Hope the guy recovers fully. I get nervous riding bay area at night because of all the deer I see running around.

lots of critters out in that area - deer, hogs, cattle, gators....

We were coming down the I-45 feeder just north of 2351 last week and saw about six hogs in the field on the west side of the roadway.
