A brown Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, a white Chevrolet Impala and a red Honda motorcycle collided Wednesday at approximately 1:10 p.m. headed southbound at the intersection of 23rd Street and North Bryant Boulevard.
Officer Todd Dornhecker with the San Angelo Police Department’s Traffic Division said the driver of the brown pickup was turning left northbound to 23rd Street from Bryant and failed to yield the right-of-way to southbound traffic. The truck had a green light, but it was not a protected green arrow.
The motorcycle driving southbound on Bryant collided with the truck, and the Impala, which was directly behind the motorcycle, collided with both the truck and the motorcycle.
Citations were issued for all drivers.
The driver of the truck, Maria Cortez Nunez, was cited for driving while license invalid and failing to yield the right-of-way, turning left. The driver of the motorcycle, Manuel Martin Baenuelos, was cited for not having a motorcycle endorsement and the operator of the Impala, Gloria Juarez, was cited for failure to control speed and for no insurance.
Police officers were able to review a surveillance video of the crash from Concho Educators Federal Credit Union, which helped them in their investigation. There were also numerous witnesses corroborating the story.
According to Dornhecker, no one was injured to the point where they had to be transported to the hospital for treatment, and the motorcyclist, although possibly hitting his head on the truck, was walking around the scene after the crash.
