The San Angelo Police Department’s Traffic Section is investigating a motorcycle fatality crash that occurred at approximately 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night at the intersection of West Avenue L and South Bryant Boulevard.
When officers arrived, they located the unresponsive male motorcyclist receiving Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) from a bystander. Officers attempted to render aid by applying a CAT Tourniquet and continuation of CPR but the man succumbed to his injuries at the scene. Justice of the Peace Eddie Howard formally pronounced the man deceased.
The preliminary field-investigation revealed the decedent was traveling Northbound in the 1600 block of South Bryant Boulevard operating a 2009 Yamaha YZF motorcycle at a high rate of speed when he collided with a white 2016 Dodge Charger that was turning eastbound at the intersection at West Avenue L from South Bryant Boulevard. The decedent was identified as 33-year-old Casey Wood of San Angelo. The operator of the Charger, a 24-year-old San Angelo man, was not injured.
This is an ongoing investigation and no additional information is available for release at this time.
