Crossroads Today reported today that Victorian, 62-year old David Lynn Weaver was killed in a motorcycle crash this morning along US 77 near Old Goliad Road. It happened at 7:07 a.m. today, Thursday, November 12. "A spokesperson with the DPS said David Lynn Weaver, 62, was riding south on US 77 when a deer entered the road and hit the 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle." Weaver lost control and died at the scene, sadly.

Although the weather has been mild these last few weeks, dense fog along with dense fog advisories have been issued off and on over the last few weeks as well, mornings have been unusually foggy making seeing clearly in front of you extremely difficult, in not impossible at times.

Living out of town in Nursery I can attest that we've seen two accidents with deer in the morning within the last month as well. There are dense wood areas where I purposely drive below the speed limit and have still experienced near misses.

In an article written by experts at Waterandwoods.com, understanding deer movement is vital when traveling on Texas roads in the fall. Deer movement peaks from 4 to 10 pm and again from 4 to 8 am, with some movement even reported as late as 8 to 10 am. As vegetation begins to die off, food sources in wooded areas are depleted as leaves begin to fall. This causes deer to seek more food in open areas.

Be careful out there Victoria. Our thoughts are with the Weaver family.
