FORT WORTH, Texas - Three members of the Fort Worth HOG were injured July 21 when a van grazed a group of more than 60 motorcyclists on its way to celebrate a recent donation with the beneficiary charity.

The riders were riding in formation in the center lanes of eastbound Interstate 30 through Fort Worth when a van in the right lane slammed into an exit barrier wall.  Fort Worth Police told NBCDFW the impact triggered deployment of her airbags and obstructed her view. The van veered into the motorcycles.

“Watching the car go into the line of motorcycles was almost like watching bowling pins, because the car kept bouncing off different motorcycles and motorcycles kept bouncing off the car,” said Matt Zavadsky, a paramedic with MedStar who was riding with the group.  

Some HOG members fear the driver may have been texting when she crashed.
