"HOUSTON - Two officers riding motorcycles were injured during two separate funeral processions in the Houston area.

Around 3:45 p.m., a Harris County deputy was escorting a funeral procession in the 9400 block of West Montgomery when a vehicle turned in front of him and he hit the car. The officer was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital via LifeFlight to treat an injury to his chest and a severe cut on his wrist.

About two hours earlier, an off-duty Metro officer also was hit by a vehicle during another funeral procession. Police said a car turned in front of him, and he flew in the air and landed on median.

The officer was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital to treat non-life threatening injuries and was later released."

Perhaps the first accident the cop was cut off by the car. Cut off so bad that he didn't have much choice but to collide with the car. Being a cop on a bike with lights and sirens you would think people would notice you more and be weary to pull out in front of you even if they have the space/time to do so.

alot of times they have to ride like madmen, because houston drivers are fu(ktards that dont offer the right of way for a persession, and they have to race ahead to block traffic.

i wouldnt doubt they were speeding, but if they were guiding a persession, that means they also had their lights on and possibly the sirens if they are approaching an intersection.

OPENING THEIR ****ING EYES.


Seriously, we need to get a huge ride together and hold "OPEN YOUR EYES" signs to wave at all the stupid houston drivers. I don't see why so many bikes are going down all of a sudden. Use your 5 senses drivers... it's not that hard.

I was in the ER where both drivers were taken, was told the officers were taken to Ben Taub though.

The officer who had the "wrist" injury may lose that hand, it was a BAD injury. I was in the room and helped moved teh driver who hit him fro the stretcher to bed. That guy was not in terrible shape, but not in great shape either. They said his car had impacts on 3 sides and appeared to have been rear ended pretty well though he hit the motorcycle cop from the front. Me and 2 other EMT students were in the room when the Sheriff's deputy was in there questioning the guy along with 2-3 other deputies and HPD. This was on top of a nurse or two and a doctor.

summary executions....

(fwiw, I rode from Clearlake to north Houston and back last night, 45 southbound was closed at Main for construction so on the way back I rode the loop. OMG I don't know how you people ride full freeway traffic all the time. Freaking cell phone drivers not paying attention and the clowns
in there cars with 22's cutting in and out of traffic need to be just straight up shot...)

I had a simular situation as klassik. I was leaving Galveston in my truck. I was comming off of Broadway onto the Cuasway. I saw the persession, so I slowed down not to pass the persession up on the cuaseway (being that there was only two lanes at the time). I was barely doing 30mph as I came to the onramp comming onto the causway....well as I was slowing down not to get hit by the traffic entering the cuaseway, placed my ssignal light on to move to the left lane. As I slowed down the moto cop slowed down to sit just in my blind spot pinning me in and about to get hit (as this was going on the persession was leaving us behind). All the sudden traffic came-up flying on mt . Now I am running abotu 15-20mph, trying to move over. The moto cop then speeds up on me and starts to chew my for trying to get in his lane. I ended yelling at him for not paying atttention to traffic that he almost put me into an accident. He finally looked around and saw what I was talking about and then speed off to catch the presession.
Sorry for the long story, but it goes to show you that you always have to be looking out (scanning) traffic regardless if you are flashing lights or in a big group. Most cages are not looking for you, so you need to look out and try not to put yourself in a bad situation (if you can help it).
