    Sounds like the motorcycles were side by side, this is the best possible scenario for a motorcycle accident as it somewhat breaks the forward momentum, and possibly keeps the rider’s body from tangling with the bike.

    Does anyone know if Lieutenant Colonel West generally wears a helmet when he rides?

    Allen West is currently dealing with a concussion, several fractured bones, and multiple lacerations. Though these injuries are serious, Lt. Col. West stated, β€œI am alive by the grace of God.”

    He plans to continue to be a proponent for freedom and the state of Texas, and will resume his normal calendar of activities as given clearance by his medical team.

    LTC West thanks the public for their well-wishes and outpouring of support, and continued prayers on his behalf are appreciated.
