Found more details...

HPD investigating two fatal motorcycle crashes

03:16 PM CDT on Sunday, July 1, 2007

From 11 News staff reports

Houston police were investigating two fatal motorcycle accidents Sunday.

The first occurred at Chartres and Runnels around 3:10 a.m.

Police said Jerry Bolton was driving northbound when he swerved out of his lane and struck a median at the intersection. Both he and the motorcycle became airborne and landed over the center median in the westbound lanes of Runnels.

Bolton was pronounced dead at the scene, and no other vehicles were involved.

The second accident occurred around 2:40 p.m. in the 3900 block of North Eldridge Parkway Sunday.

Ted Stanhope was pronounced dead at the scene after striking a guardrail while on his motorcycle.

Both Stanhope and his passenger, Marcy Goodman, were ejected.

Goodman was taken to Memorial Hermann with a severe leg injury.

No other vehicles were involved.

Although hardly surprising, this is an abstract of a paper that was e-mailed to me a few months back.


The objective of this study is to examine the issue of fatal motorcycle collisions with guardrail based on U.S. accident statistics. Motorcycle crashes were found to be the leading source of fatalities in guardrail crashes. In 2005
for the first time, motorcycle riders suffered more fatalities (224) than the passengers of cars (171) or any other single vehicle type involved in a guardrail collision. In terms of fatalities per registered vehicle, motorcycle riders are dramatically overrepresented in number of fatalities resulting from guardrail impacts. Motorcycles compose only 2% of the vehicle fleet, but account for 42% of all fatalities resulting from guardrail collisions. Motorcycle-guardrail crash fatalities are a growing problem. From 2000-2005, the number of car occupants who were fatally injured in guardrail collisions declined by 31% from 251 to 171 deaths. In contrast, the number of motorcyclists fatally-injured in guardrail crashes increased by 73% from 129 to 224 fatalities during the same time period. Over two-thirds of motorcycle riders who were fatally injured in a guardrail crash were wearing a helmet. Approximately, one in ten motorcyclists striking a guardrail were fatally injured a fatality risk over 80 times higher than for car occupants involved in a collision with a guardrail.
