"When they pulled out of The Texan and entered the right southbound lane on North Main Street, they heard motorcycles approaching and were rear-ended by one of them" -- This strongly suggests that the driver of the truck entered the lane right in front of the motorcycles instead of waiting for them to pass, which would have been the safe and legal thing to do. Given the questionable circumstances I expect that Mark Rosenberg will be following up on this story. Thanx, Mark.
