GRANBURY, Texas (AP) — A North Texas driver accused of intentionally hitting a motorcycle and leaving two people hurt says he swerved after an insect bit him.

William Crum of Granbury was being held Tuesday on two counts of aggravated assault over the videotaped wreck near Granbury. Hood County jail records don’t list an attorney to speak for Crum, whose bond was $150,000.


Another motorcyclist wearing a camera taped Saturday’s accident that sent rider Eric Sanders and his girlfriend tumbling. The video shows Crum pulling over and the second cyclist yells: “What were you doing? You hit them.”

Crum responds: “I don’t care.”

Crum later told reporters that he’s sorry and there was no passing on that stretch.

Sanders acknowledged crossing a yellow double line but said he believes Crum intentionally hit his motorcycle.
