Wow thats pretty similar to what happened to me last year except the tire hit my bike and not me directly. I really don't want to think about what would have happened if it did. :confused1 was certainly looking out for me that day. My prayers are with the rider.

This is the thread that discussed what happened to me last year: http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=15825

I had a tire hit me back in 2001 as well. Talk about getting shook up. It hit me, taking out my mirror, blinker as well as some beauty marks on the lower fairing.

All in all, I think it will be a busy weekend for the medical crews.

Just like they reported the accident a few weeks ago, the guy going over the railing at 610 falling 40 feet... the helmet was a factor there too!
Must have created a blind spot in his field of view! helmets!

i saw them loading up the bike on 45 it was a black bike bmw style or perhaps a gs 5-600 i i couldnt really tell. and there was a dodge suv about 400feet infront of the bike that was missing his bumper so i assume he hit the rider or the bike...no blood on the scene so that was good. and it was moron driving a really refrigerator truck that lost its tire.

Motorcyclist looks for good Samaritan trucker

By KEVIN MORAN
Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle

Jeff Blessing's guardian angel drives an 18-wheeler.

On May 25, an unidentified trucker used his rig to shield the Dickinson man from traffic after he wiped out on his motorcycle in the northbound lanes of Interstate 45 near NASA Parkway.

"I was laying in the middle of the freeway taking a nap," said Blessing, referring to the 10:20 a.m. accident in which he struck a vehicle that had slowed or swerved after being hit by a loose tire from another vehicle.

Police said the trucker saw Blessing and maneuvered to block two lanes.

"I believe the trucker did save the guy's life," said Webster police officer Mark Rawls.

But the man, Rawls said, "wasn't directly involved, and he wasn't a witness to the accident so he was able to leave. I ... wasn't able to get his name before he left."

Now Blessing, 24, wants to find the trucker "so we can tell him how grateful we are. I'm just so thankful I got to come home again and see my wife and my little boys."

Blessing was on his way to work at an insurance firm near FM 290 and Loop 610 when the wreck occurred. He remembers only that he was flown to a hospital, and his wife, Dorothy, was called to let her know he wasn't seriously hurt.

Though his motorcycle was destroyed, Blessing was wearing a helmet and leather jacket, which helped limit his injuries to a concussion, sprained shoulders and "road rash."

Rawls said he talked to the trucker briefly: "I told him he really did a good deed because we definitely would have been working a fatality accident if he hadn't done what he did."

Hope this serves as a lesson for the squids out there and some of them on this board.
