15 Years of Jail for Driver who Swerved Into Couple on Motorcycle

A driver who intentionally swerved into a couple on a motorcycle has been jailed for 15 years.

A video showed William Sam Crum, 69, veering into Eric Sanders, who was on the bike with his girlfriend in Granbury, Texas.

The couple crashed to the ground, with Mr Sanders suffering cuts and his partner breaking her wrist.

Crum was arrested a few days after the incident in October, 2015, after a video emerged showing what had happened.

He was filmed by another motorbike rider who confronted him over the incident on the Tin Top Highway.

When he was asked why he did it Crum replied ‘I don’t care. Double yellow stripes’ in reference to being undertaken by the motorcycle he crashed into.

He had also claimed a wasp stung him and caused him to veer across the lane.

Here is a video report from FOX 4 News with Crum recorded speaking out about the incident.

A jury did not believe his claims and he was convicted of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon at a court in Hood County.

Crum, who has prior conviction for reckless driving, was jailed for 15 years on Thursday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

He has been locked up since his arrest in 2015.
