The student was driving a two-door passenger vehicle and was attempting to turn left from the private drive of the apartment complex. A shuttle bus belonging to the Gateway Apartments was traveling south on Sam Houston Avenue and preparing to turn right onto the private drive, while a Dodge pickup driven by a 19-year-old man was traveling southbound in the left lane of Sam Houston Avenue.
When the student attempted to turn left, the Dodge truck struck his driver’s side door, sending the car spinning off the road and into the grass.
“He hit right on the door,” Mitchell.“The fire department had to cut the door off the car.”
Ah, the bus hid the view of the dodge truck from the turning motorist's view.
Seeing as I'm motorcyclist, it's apparent that many people driving now days are too busy on cell phones, texting, talking or eating their fast food, to pay attention to driving. So, it's not any wonder that crashes like this, with completely sober drivers, occur.
