Apparently, a bus may have also been involved in the crash. 

Officers say the motorcyclist sustained major injuries.

In the meantime, officers are investigating the cause of the vehicle collision south of Grapevine Road.

As a driver, it is your responsibility to be a proactive driver, rather than a reactive one. Moreover, driving defensively prepares you for emergencies.

If the road is winding to the right, for example, look as far into the turn as possible. This will improve your safety and make your turns smoother.
