July 5, 2010 at 2:05 a.m.
A dog was uninjured after crashing into a motorcyclist about 6:30 p.m. Monday in a Mission Valley neighborhood.
The neighborhood is located near the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 236 and Farm-to-Market Road 447.
The black lab was headed east onto another property when he struck the front wheel of a Harley Davidson headed north down the street, said patrol deputy D. Bettes with the Victoria County Sheriff's Office.
The motorcyclist, whom Bettes identified as a man in his 50s, fell from his bike and had minor scrapes but was not taken to a hospital.
He was not wearing his helmet and was travelling less than 10 miles per hour, Bettes said.
The dog should have been restrained on the property, but no one was cited, Bettes said.
The Victoria and Mission Valley fire departments also responded to the scene.
