May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Both motorcyclists and motorists need to be aware of their surroundings. Checking blind spots, and mirrors and using turn signals are necessary when changing lanes and when passing.
As part of raising awareness, we'll be sharing some stories of people impacted. Tomorrow, we'll share a video highlighting Ector Marin who was involved in a motorcycle crash last year.
"I was thrown off the motorcycle. I went rolling about three or four times in the street," said Marin. "It happened so quickly."
He also saw many wrecks during his career. Marin served as a firefighter with Odessa Fire Rescue for 30 years.
