An East Texas motorcyclist who was injured in a wreck last week has a long recovery road ahead of him.
JC Chavis, 57, of Longview, has been moved out of ICU after being hit by a truck in a wreck on September 4.
Longview Police say 60-year-old Jimmy Mayfield, of Longview, was turning left on Spur 63, in front of the Whataburger near Highway 80, when he hit Chavis. According to police, Mayfield was issued a ticket for failure to yield the right of way.
Chavis' family members say he is recovering from a broken leg, dislocated shoulder and a concussion. They say he will need physical therapy to walk again.
