Motorcyclist dies following crash with SUV in NE Katy

HARRIS COUNTY, TX — A man was fatally injured last Sunday evening, December 3, when his motorcycle collided with another vehicle in northeast Katy, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The fatal crash happened in the 23900 block of Franz Road, in an area north of Robert E. King Elementary School. It was first reported at around 7:05 p.m.

An early investigation shows Claudia Parrish was behind the wheel of a westbound Nissan Pathfinder when she began turning southbound onto the 24200 block of Arrow Star Drive. Authorities indicated that the SUV entered the path of a westbound Yamaha motorcycle operated by the victim, Demeterius Bennett. Moments later, the Yamaha hit the right side of the Nissan.

First responders rushed Bennett to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he died from his injuries.

The Vehicular Crimes Division of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate. While officials observed that the Yamaha did not have a “properly functioning” headlight at the time of the wreck, it’s unclear whether Parrish will be charged.
