A Boyd man was flown to a Metroplex hospital after ramming his motorcycle into a passenger car south of Boyd Monday afternoon.
Carmen Miller, 56, was transported by AirEvac Lifeteam helicopter ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth with gashes on his head and multiple breaks and lacerations to his leg. His injuries did not appear to be life threatening.
Investigators said Miller was traveling northbound on Farm Road 730, near County Road 4470, behind a Chevrolet passenger car driven by Cassie Barbie, 22, of Boyd. Barbie had slowed and signaled her intention to turn left and was starting to turn when Miller attempted to pass her, ramming directly into the left rear of the car.
Although none have yet been issued, Trooper Zeb Siebeneck said Miller will be issued a citation for passing in a no-passing zone. Siebeneck said because Miller also smelled of alcohol and beer and hard liquor were found on the bike, investigators will also “look into a possible DWI” on Miller.
