Police investigate motorcycle, car accident on Loop 323

TYLER, August 23, 2013--At 5:18 p.m., on August 22, Tyler 911 received a call about a traffic crash at the intersection of Loop 323, at Donnybrook. The callers indicated the occurrence of a traffic accident involving a motorcycle and a car. The callers also indicated the motorcycle rider was injured.  Officers arrived at the scene 3 minutes later.

Investigation revealed Tony Peters, of Flint, was operating a Harley Davidson motorcycle westbound on the loop. Scott Plummer, of Tyler, was operating a Dodge Caravan eastbound on the loop in the inside lane. Peters appears to have failed to yield right-of-way and turned into the path of Plummer to go south on Donnybrook. Peters was thrown onto the hood of Plummer’s vehicle and sustained non-life threatening injuries. Plummer was also injured in the accident.

Both men were transported to the East Texas Medical Center for treatment, where they were expected to be treated and released.

Eastbound traffic on the loop was diverted to the outside lane for several minutes until the scene could be cleared.
