WACO, Texas (KWTX) Boone Barott, 45, of Riesel, the vice president of the American Legion 121 Elm Mott riders group, was in a Waco hospital Monday after he was severely injured in a hit-and-run accident Sunday night.

Barott was riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle on the Interstate 35 access road next to the Texas Department of Transportation offices on the north side of Waco when an SUV whose driver was headed the wrong way hit his motorcycle shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday.

The driver did not stop.

Barott sustained a broken pelvis and a number of lacerations and scrapes and bruises over all his body.

A friend arrived on the scene moments later and was able to call 911 and Barrott was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center.
