*WARNING* - Graphic language and violent motorcycle crash in video.
A motorcyclist is in serious condition after a violent crash yesterday evening.
15 seconds into the video, you can see a motorcycle driver turning left into oncoming traffic. According to eyewitnesses at the scene, the driver of the SUV was traveling the speed limit and had the right of way.
According to a FOX 7 viewer, the accident occurred around 5:15pm at the intersection of Burnet Rd and 49th St.
The video uploader goes on to say that, "Looks like the motorcycle turned left in front of the SUV. Neither had a good view of the entire intersection because of the slight curve in the road and the long bus obstructing the view."
