Police: Friendswood driver intentionally ran over motorcyclist in love triangle

FRIENDSWOOD, TX (KTRK) -- A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a wreck early Thursday morning, and police say it was no accident.

The crash happened at about 7am on FM 528 and Winding Way. Friendswood police say Terry Lee Craft, 34, intentionally ran his pickup truck into the motorcycle. They say Craft accelerated, crossed traffic and hit the motorcyclist, then hit another vehicle. Police say Craft and his wife are going through a divorce, and the motorcyclist is dating Craft's wife.

At one point, witnesses believed that Craft was going to leave the scene. Police say Craft got in his vehicle and tried to drive away but the front end damage on the vehicle was so severe, it prevented him from going anywhere. When police arrived, Craft was in the parking lot of a nearby business. He was taken into custody without incident.

According to police, there are differing accounts about the motorcyclist and Craft having weapons. They confirm that several handguns were seized as evidence from the scene; investigators have yet to determine if the presence of weapons was a factor in the case. Craft also reportedly went to the motorcyclist's place of employment on Wednesday and threatened him.

The woman who was driving the SUV that was hit was treated at the hospital for minor injuries and released.

The motorcyclist was taken by ambulance to Clear Lake Regional Hospital, where he's listed in serious but stable condition.

Craft is charged with aggravated assault. Bond was set at $40,000.
