A tragic motorcycle accident occurred on Saratoga Blvd in front of the HEB Plus on March 29, 2015. Police investigation of the facts of the crash indicate that a driver of a minivan attempted to cross multiple lanes of traffic on Saratoga Blvd to make a u-turn and did not see the oncoming motorcycle which was traveling in the center lane of Saratgoa Blvd in front of Huntington Square.
The driver of the motorcycle, Wayne Fowler, lost control of the bike as he attempted to avoid colliding with the minivan and suffered serious head injuries as a result of the crash, despite the fact that he was wearing his helmet at the time. He was treated in intensive care at Christus Spohn hospital for the next two weeks but unfortunately died of his injuries late Thursday night.
The passenger of the motorcycle, Lorraine Villarreal, also suffered serious head injuries as a result of the motorcycle crash and died a day after the accident. She was 25 years old.
