By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

Joel Haggard, 66, of Fredericksburg, was injured in a motorcycle crash the afternoon of Sunday, Jan. 30.
According to reports from the Texas Department of Public Safety, Haggard was traveling north on Highway 16 near Hatfield Ranch Road when his vehicle left the roadway. He then failed to negotiate a curve, returned to the roadway and struck the left guardrail.
He was airlifted to University Hospital in San Antonio where he remains.
In view of the regularity of motorcycle accidents on the roadways of Bandera County, The Courier urges all cyclists to exercise caution and obey posted speed limits. And it\'s always a good idea to snap on that helmet.
