A motorcycle driver with an apparent head injury was taken to a Dallas hospital after he was involved in a wreck in the 1900 block of Clarksville Street this afternoon.

Curtis Garrett, public information officer for Paris Police Department, said the motorcycle was heading eastbound, following a vehicle that had stopped in the roadway to allow another vehicle to exit a private drive of a business and turn west. The motorcycle driver moved into the left turn lane to go around the stopped vehicle and collided with the vehicle exiting the private drive.

Anyone know who was injured?

Will do thanks for posting. I ride and have many friends that ride. I don't know this person by name - but may have seen him. Riders stick together and genuinely care about others that ride.

I was told this morning that the latest cat scans show that the bleeding on his brain is going down and things are looking more positive. I am not right there with them so this information might not be as acurate as I would like it to be. Just keep him in your prayers that he will make a recovery

This is the email that i just received from the family just so everyone has an update:

As of right now, Bruce Lee still has a brain bleed, they are watching and if it continues he will have surgery. A Gash on the back of his head, all of the bones around his eyes are broken whole shoulder broken, left lung is punctured, left ribs are broken,spleen is damaged, pelvis is fractured, and they are worried about his bladder. It is bleeding. They had not done the bottom half of his body when I talked to my sister-in law. Please pray for them and my family.
thanks

I don't understand people that ride motorcycles and don't wear helmets. Even if they do, why take a chance riding one? The thrill worth the price?

or is it even worth your life to drive so reckless, he should have waited for the car in front of him instead if being impatient and going around. I feel bad that he got hurt but his own stupidity did it.
oh wow

i have never used the turn lane as my personal lane to go around another vehicle because im never in that big of a hurry! The truck was being let out so how was it their fault? If hes even able to walk much less ride a bike again maybe he will be more cautious next time and slow his ass down. And if his brain isnt scrambled egg he might want to use a little common sense too! BtW i was waiting to pull out from Kroger and witnessed him speeding before the accident!! So you tell me how thay is the trucks fault!
