MANVEL — A collision between a motorcycle and a Suburban resulted in the death of a 64-year-old Alvin woman Saturday afternoon, police said.

Anise Knigge Stiefvater died at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston after a medical helicopter took her from the accident scene in the 17500 block of Highway 6 in Manvel, Manvel Police Capt. Aaron Bell said.

The wreck happened at about 2:55 p.m. Saturday when a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle, operated by Stiefvater, hit the back of a white 2002 Chevrolet suburban driven by Mark Jones, 43, of Fresno, Bell said.

The Suburban was eastbound in the center lane of the highway and had slowed to change lanes and enter a business driveway but was unable to because of another vehicle in the driver’s blind spot, Bell said.

Stiefvater struck the rear of the Suburban and was thrown from the motorcycle, Bell said. She was not wearing a helmet.

Fresno and his passenger were not harmed in the accident, Bell said.

Alcohol was not believed to be a contributing factor, he said.

  2. The death of a 64-year-old Anise Knigge Stiefvater is really unfortunate but such fatal motorcycle accidents are becoming a cause of worry these days. May be she was unable to see the Suburban while trying to cross the highway and had crashed with it when it slowed to change lanes and enter a business driveway. Such situations may arise for any motorcyclist & if he/she was not in high speed then the chances of surviving such accidents is really high. Moreover the helmet wearing reduces the risk of fatal head injuries. It is more likely that Stiefvater might have suffered grievous injuries in the accident as he was not wearing a helmet. However her family might seek for legal advice from a motorcycle accident attorney & claim for compensation successfully.
