A Cleburne man was stitched up and released from Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital on Monday. The motorcycle accident occurred at 11:45 a.m. in the morning.
The motorcyclist, Matthew Lybbert, told rescuers that the truck in front of him had come to a sudden stop. Lybbert was able to swerve right, but clipped the left side of his bike on the truck.
Lybbert believes the truck stopped because the driver thought the light at North Main Street and U.S 67 was red instead of green. While he was able to avoid direct contact with the truck, he was unable to regain balance and fell off his bike.
Crashes like this can be prevented by paying more attention to the road. By being aware and by adhering to road safety rules many accidents can be avoided. A motorcycle rider is 37 times more likely to die in a crash than automobile driver. Luckily Matthew Lybbert was able to escape the accident with only thirty stitches.
