Rayburn County Motorcycle Crash Detours Flag for War VeteranPosted on Feb 07, 2012
A motorcycle brigade was traveling eastbound on FM 1007 when a vehicle traveling westbound, driven by Alvin Mundy, began to slow down as the motorcycles approached. The vehicle behind Mundy, driven by Kaysie Nichole Lovaas Alverado, rear-ended Mundy's vehicle. This caused Mundy’s car to flip and spin into the group of motorcyclists. With Mundy's car overturned, two female motorcyclists ran into the rear of his car. The motorcyclists were critically injured and airlifted to a nearby hospital.
Mundy and his passengers – his wife and 3-year-old daughter – were taken to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital to be treated for their injuries. Reports did not clarify whether Alverado and her daughter, the only passenger in her car, were injured. The crash is still under investigation.
The motorcyclists were en route to present a flag to U.S. Army Master Sergeant Andrew Primeaux. He was visiting his parents at their Rayburn County home. He had served two tours of duty in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. The flag presentation was going to be a surprise for Primeaux.
The Grapevine motorcycle crash attorneys at The Hart Law Firm extend their condolences to the families impacted by this tragic crash. We remind all drivers on the road to maintain a safe driving distance from other vehicles and to remain aware of motorcyclists, in an effort to help keep our roadways safe.
