BEE CAVE — A Spicewood man died Jan. 28 after an SUV collided with his motorcycle on Texas 71, according to a report by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The incident happened around 6 p.m. about 1.6 miles west of Bee Cave.

James Rodney Holt, 51, of Spicewood was driving a 2011 Harley Davidson, which “was traveling westbound in the outside lane, entering the intersection of Serene Hills Drive,” according to the DPS report.

A 2011 Cadillac SUV — driven by 37-year-old Anna Freita of Spicewood — “was traveling eastbound, making a left turn from (Texas) 71 onto Serene Hills Drive,” according to the report.

The Cadillac “continued to turn into the intersection and crashed into” the motorcycle, according to the report.

Holt was pronounced dead at 6:43 p.m. by Dr. Burman Sundepe at St. David’s South Austin Hospital.

    Maybe just maybe, he turned LEFT in front of her. Oh but wait, it’s never the cyclist’s fault.

      FYI!!! It was her fault . This was my father and he was in the far lane. She has a ticket for a failure to yield. So unless you know the facts please keep it to your self.

    fyi it was her fault and that was my dad so unless you dont know the facts on this then keep your mouth shut.

  4. Shame on you! says:

    What an idiot! “Just Thinking” – someone killed a person that meant something to a family! Why would you dare blame it on the dead person unless you are the killer!!!!???? The lady should have seen him. The lady should have heard him, he was on a Harley. She had an entire lane to stop-but she didn’t. She was in a hurry & yes, probably on a cell phone. She lives & enjoys her family & life. The man is 6 feet under. No happy holidays for his family. And I bet she never said she was sorry to the family. Slow down. Watch for motorcycles & stay off the cell phones. Pay attention.
    “Just Thinking” – I hope you never loose a family member killed by a careless person like this family had. I will pray for you. You need it.

    And “Just Thinking”. – FYI-you don’t have the facts. The lady turned into him. He was going straight. You are an idiot. Get your facts straight!

    Sadly our dad, our brother, our uncle, our friend was taken from us. We did not get to say “goodbye”. Our hearts are very broken.
    Our lives will never be the same and we miss you, James, so much. You will always be in our hearts.

    Our brother went to the morgue and the stupid distracted lady went home to sleep in her cozy bed. No alcohol drug testing was done on her. She paid nothing & served no time but a minor traffic ticket for failure to yield the right away. She expressed no remorse. She did not pay the funeral expense. James missed his son’s wedding and the birth of his grand daughter. James was “expensed” because he was a biker and wasn’t a pretty lady in a Cadillac. Our laws are messed up. We loved our James and she took him from us. Sad our laws didn’t protect him. Our hearts are forever broken. In loving memory of James Holt
