Exclamation Lonestar Ralley 2012 , Not many accidents reported

Reports only show 2 deaths and a couple of injuries. One death was due to a drunk driver in a cage hitting a parked motorcyclist. Not to bad for a ralley that big, that many people and not that big of a place. Im glad to hear this but RIP to the couple that werent so lucky

*And yes I spelt Rally wrong, but cant change it, sorry

We had two bikes from my MC go down, both due to cagers running a red light and t-boning them. Both riders and one passenger hospitalized, but will make full recovery. Worst injury was cracked cheekbone.

Didn't hear if too many DWI cases, either, that's good.

Rally ends with big crowds, two bike-related death
By T.J. Aulds
The Daily News
Published November 5, 2012

One man was killed when he lost control of his motorcycle and drove off the seawall early Sunday morning police. The unidentified man’s death was the second confirmed motorcycle-related fatality in the county during the Lone Star Rally weekend.

On Saturday, the father of a Galveston County Sheriff’s Office deputy was killed when he was struck by an SUV driven by a suspected drunken driver while he was parked on the shoulder of state Highway 6 with his motorcycle.

The latest fatality happened at about 1:13 a.m. at 12th Street and Seawall Boulevard, Galveston Police Department spokesman Lt. Michael Gray said. The motorcycle rider, whose name was not released, pending notification of his family of his death, was headed eastbound on Seawall Boulevard when he was unable to negotiate the curve of the road.

He lost control of his bike and went over the seawall. He was not wearing a helmet, Gray said.

Police suspect alcohol and speeding contributed to the crash.

The man’s death was one of the few down points of what was generally considered a successful Lone Star Rally weekend.

City officials estimated more than 500,000 people converged on the island for the nation’s largest weekend motorcycle bike rally.

The main focus of the weekend was to have fun and in some cases contribute some money to a good cause.

Evergreen Industrial Services’ seventh annual bike ride for charity drew more than 700 riders this year and was estimated to raise about $30,000 for Project Joy and Hope, Evergreen President Jon Hodges said.

The Galveston County Food Bank sold raffle tickets with the winner, Matt Myers of Houston, taking home a new motorcycle.

The bikes were the real show of the weekend as thousands lined the streets of downtown from 25th Street eastward to 19th Street.

“It’s one of the most enjoyable, safest of any festival I have ever been too,” David Young of Katy said after riding his 2002 Road King CVO to the island for the weekend.

Carmen Nelson of San Antonio was taking in her first Lone Star Rally after coming to town with members of the Mercenaries Motorcycle Club from the Alamo City.

“This is a good city for (the rally),” Nelson said. “I’m having a great time.”

Gregory Lee, president of the club, said his group had about 10 people staying at a West End beach house they had rented for the weekend.

“Galveston is great,” Lee, who goes by the handle Mercenary Tank, said. “It’s a great town to come for its (casual) atmosphere. It’s beautiful here.”

Hotels from Galveston to Dickinson reported few to no vacancies over the weekend.

For the most part, the half-million visitors, while rowdy and raucous, were well-behaved.

Gray said there were a total of 11 arrests in the downtown entertainment district in Galveston over the weekend.

Countywide, 19 people were charged with drunken driving, according to initial police reports. That includes the intoxicated manslaughter charge in the death of Danny Hunt, 54, who was killed Saturday morning in Hitchcock.

Galveston County District Attorney Jack Roady said that 11 suspected drunken drivers had mandatory blood draws and were charged as part of the county’s no-refusal weekend between Thursday and Sunday morning. Eight of those had their blood drawn after warrants were issued while three consented, Roady said.

Galveston’s ambulance service was busy this year, but not as much as last year, Galveston EMS director Amy Weber said. There were 117 medical calls in Galveston over the weekend compared to 172 last year, she said.

That contrasted with the emergency room at the University of Texas Medical Branch’s John Sealy Hospital.

UTMB’s trauma center had double the number of patients it would normally handle this time of the year, spokeswoman Kristen Hensley said. The emergency room had 351 patients since Friday compared to 300 visits during the rally last year.

Because UTMB serves the entire region, no direct connection to motorcycle-related injuries could be made. Law enforcement officials across the county were unable to pinpoint how many motorcycle-related accidents there were this weekend.

As usual police had their share of noise complaints and some downtown businesses avoided opening their doors because of the crowd. Some motorcycle owners found their rides towed after parking in areas they weren’t supposed to and downtown was a bit trashed with beer bottles and debris from the crush of the crowds that rivaled a solid Mardi Gras weekend.

Saw a rider dump his scoot infront of the IHOP on 53rd @ Seawall Friday afternoon. Within 5 minutes of that some drunk chick fell into the swimming pool. One walked away, the other swam.

I've seen twice as much asshats on sportbikes blow their motor revving it then "Harleys" if they were even Harleys. Guess they like hearing the bing bing bing bing bing sound while they roast their motor

I you're up enough to lose control and solo off the seawall then you shouldn't be riding in the first place. Don't feel sorry for the rider. Feel sorry for the rest of the community that now looks worse bc of it and feel bad for the loved ones left behind. Control your ...
