March 21, 2013 Motor Cycle vs. Motor Vehicle crash in the 2900 block of I-27 in the northbound lanes.

On March 21, 2013 at approximately 2:13 pm Officers were sent on a major crash in the 2900 block of I-27 in the northbound lanes.  Upon their arrival they discovered a 2005 Suzuki 1200 Bandit motorcycle driven by Daniel L Baus, WM, 33 of St Charles, IL had lost control of his bike.  His bike struck a 1997 Chevy S-10 Blazer driven by Jose L Cortes-Martinez, WM, 33 of Amarillo.  Cortes-Martinez and other traffic had stopped in the roadway due to a collision approximately one block north.  It appears that Baus didn’t see the traffic congestion in front of him.  He lost control of the Suzuki as he was braking.  He was thrown from the bike and received life threatening injuries.  I-27 was down to one lane for northbound traffic for about 2 hours.  Baus was transported to a local area hospital.  The incident is being investigated by the Traffic Investigations Squad of the Amarillo Police Dept.
