TEXAS CITY — Police said a man who is charged with running a red light slammed into a motorcycle Thursday night, seriously injuring the couple riding the bike.
The accident happened at about 9 p.m. at FM 1765 and state Highway 146.
Sidney Cammeresi and Theresa Masone were headed north on state Highway 146 when a Chrysler 300 hit the bike.
Police said, based on witness reports, the man driving the Chrysler ran the red light. Cammeresi of Texas City and Masone, who lives in La Porte, were taken by helicopter to UTMB Health’s John Sealy Hospital, where each was listed as a trauma patient, Texas City Police Capt. Goetschius said.
The driver of the Chrysler told police that the light was yellow and not red, Goetschius said.
But police believe the witnesses’ accounts.
Edward Scott, 36, of Texas City, was charged with driving a vehicle without a license, failure to maintain insurance and running a red light. Police reports indicate that the car, which had temporary paper license tags, belonged to Scott’s sister.
