Texas man, William Sam Crum, 69, who was caught intentionally swerving into passing motorcyclist in Hood County has been sentenced to 15 years in prison. Crum has been convicted of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

He was accused of purposely swerving into a motorcycle, causing the rider, Eric Sanders, 37, to crash. Sanders’ pillion, Debra Simpson, 38, suffered multiple injuries including a broken arm, cuts and bruises.


The incident, which took place in October 2015, was caught on camera by a fellow rider who was riding behind Sanders.

Crum refused to apologise to the rider and said that it wasn’t entirely his fault. He, however, apologized to the pillion rider. In an interview, Crum showed a spider bit on his leg which, according to him, caused him to lose control of his car. He also added that had Sanders been not overtaking his car in the no-pass zone, the accident wouldn’t have happened.
