Texas man dies in motorcycle wreck

THIBODAUX A Texas man died Saturday after his motorcycle crashed on U.S. 90 in Assumption Parish.

Westley Dossey, 63, and his passenger Ailene Dossey, 59, both of Texarkana, were heading east on the highway around 5 p.m. in a 2002 Honda Goldwing motorcycle with a small trailer. Speaking over radio with another cyclist, Westley reported that the motorcycle was vibrating. The rear tire then came loose and the bike crashed into the highway retaining wall, throwing the two from the vehicle.

The pair was transported to Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, where Westley later died. Ailene received moderate injuries. Both were wearing regulation helmets.

Alcohol and drug use are not suspected as a factor in the crash, but blood tests will be done as required by state law in all fatal wrecks. Lab results are pending from the Assumption Parish Coroner's Office.

The lady works at BancorpSouth. She used to be at the main office where Sharon works, but had moved to the Richmond Rd branch.
The article describes her injuries as moderate, but she's hurt pretty badly.
He had just had the tires changed at the Honda Shop before heading out on this trip.

edit: 5-11-2011 I'm now told that he had the bike checked out at the Honda Shop before he left. I don't know that he had new tires put on.

Update and clarification.
Ailene is having surgery on her hip today.
Clarification: He took the bike by the dealership to get it checked out before the trip. I don't know that he bought tires prior to the trip.

Ailene had surgery yesterday on her hip. I don't know the results. Also heard that she may be coming home in a few days. According to the paper this morning, funeral arrangements are still pending for Tommy. I don't know if Ailene has some idea of attending.
I'll post any info I get. If anybody else hears anything, please let us kknow.
