Motorcycle Crash, Driver Flown to Houston, MOSCOW, August 14, 2015 - At approximately 9:15 am on August 14, 2015, a black 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle, driven by Rhonda Adams, 44, of Nacogdoches, was north-bound on US-59. According to Adams, another vehicle cut in front of her and caused her to lose control. Her motorcycle turned over, ejecting her in the process. Her vehicle slid approximately 50 feet further and came to rest in the left lane of the north-bound side. Adams also came to rest in the pavement. She was not wearing a helmet. Americare Ambulance Service was dispatched to the scene along with the Corrigan Volunteer Fire Department, Deputies Rey Davalos and Kenneth Fletcher with the Polk County Sheriff's Office, and Troopers Chad Seamans and Allen Stanton with the Texas Highway Patrol. Adams sustained major injuries including a broken femur, head and facial injuries, and possible internal injuries. A landing zone was set up on the south-bound side of 59. A PHi Air Medical helicopter landed and transported Adams to Hermann Hospital in Houston. All traffic on the north-bound side of 59 was blocked during investigation, cleanup, and flight operations (the south-bound side was blocked during flight operations only). Adams' motorcycle was recovered by Riley Wrecker Service and will be stored in Corrigan. The accident remains under investigation by the Texas Highway Patrol.
