Denison Police said a couple’s break up ended with road rage and road rash Tuesday after a woman used a vehicle to knock her ex-boyfriend off his moving motorcycles.
Lt. Mike Eppler said the incident occurred shortly after 5 p.m. at the intersection of Spur 503 and Theresa Drive. Eppler said the 19-year-old female suspect and her 21-year-old ex-boyfriend had reportedly argued about their relationship before they took to their separate vehicles and began traveling in the same direction.
“They were driving side-by-side on the road,” Eppler said. “Then, she moves over and clips his rear tire on the motorcycle, with her vehicle, causing him to be ejected.”
It wasn’t immediately clear what road the two were traveling on or how fast they were going at the time of the collision, but Eppler said the motorcyclist did sustain injuries in the crash.
“It doesn’t sound like he was wearing a helmet,” Eppler said. “He was bleeding about the head, but he refused medical treatment.”
Eppler said investigators had identified the suspect but were still in the process of locating her Wednesday. The woman could be charged with family violence aggravated assault using a deadly weapon, as well as failure to provide information and render aid. Eppler encouraged anyone who finds himself or herself in a heated domestic dispute to walk away and avoid violence.
“If it’s getting out of control, it’s best just to separate,” Eppler said. “Go the other way; get away from each other until things cool off.”
