Nov. 17, 2005 -- Police accident investigators said Thursday that the identity of a man injured in one of two motorcycle accidents last weekend has been learned.
�We have finally determined that the individual that was involved in the single motorcycle accident on Gilmer Street Sunday night is Michael Glenn McFadden, 22 years old,� said Sulphur Springs Police Capt. Norman Colyer.
Officers had initially been unable to make a positive identification of the man. He did not have a driver's license or other identification in his possession at the time of the accident, and there was no license plate on the motorcycle.
Police later learned the motorcycle belonged to another person and was being stored by a third person.
On Wednesday, McFadden remained in the surgical intensive care unit at Parkland Hospital in Dallas following surgery.
Colyer said the cause of the accident is still undetermined.
�According to witness statements from people that actually saw the accident, he just went down,� the captain said. �There was not another vehicle involved, there was nothing in the roadway.�
Accident investigators said a number of phone calls had been received from people who said they had seen the motorcycle near the Interstate 30 service road just before the accident occurred.
Another person injured in a motorcycle crash Sunday is expected to be released from the hospital this week.
Adrian Lamont Wooten, 32, of Sulphur Springs was riding a motorcycle and Chris Young, 19, also of Sulphur Springs, was riding a mini motorcycle near Pacific Park when the two bikes collided around 5:30 p.m. on Lamar Street. Both riders sustained severe injuries and were taken to Hopkins County Memorial Hospital. Wooten died of injuries sustained in the crash shortly after arriving at the hospital. Young was flown to Parkland Hospital for treatment of broken bones and severe lacerations.
Colyer said Young was not injured as seriously as first believed. He said family members told accident investigators that Young was doing well and was expected to possibly be home sometime this week.
Funeral services for Adrian Lamont Wooten Sr. will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church. Interment will follow in Pleasant Hill Cemetery. An informal visitation will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at Murray-Orwosky Funeral Home.
