It was a surprise-gone-bad when members of the East Texas Christian Club were traveling from Lufkin to Rayburn County on Saturday, January 21 to surprise a returning war veteran with an American flag. The tragedy began when one car rear-ended another, causing a chain reaction of events. According to reports, the accident involved two female motorcyclists and two cars.

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 accident 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 accident. 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.
