    Passing on second hand info of someone who saw the aftermath of an accident at the intersection of North Heritage Trace & Old Denton Rd in north Fort Worth. They said that the rider was gone already probably by ambulance and looked like the car caught the side of the bike, BMW F800 GS.
    Intersection is 5 lanes each way and was changed last week from a 4 way over to signals. Maybe either one in the habit of stopping at a sign then rolling on through the intersection.

    Hope all is well.

    That's a nasty corner, they needed a light there. It seems like it was just a few years ago that corner was out in the country, cows and everything. Dang developers! I hope that guy or gal is ok.

    I live about a mile from there... and i'll bet that was the case, it has been a 4 way stop for a long time. I bet out of habbit the cager did a rolling stop and took off :cry - hope the rider is ok.
