Houston Texas is home to many bike trails. Memorial Park, located inside the 610 loop, has some of the best. Riders of most skill levels can find a trail they find changeling and enjoyable. While trail rides can be a great form of entertainment, they can also be dangerous. Injuries can occur when a rider attacks a trail that is beyond their skill level. But not all mishaps are the result of rider error. Many times faulty equipment is the cause of a rider's injury.
On June 21, 2013, a 40-year-old West Texas oilfield worker was killed when part of a drilling rig collapsed. Investigators said the victim was dead at the scene near Big Spring, Texas.
