Motorcyclist killed in crash involving DUI suspect on I-69 near Montrose

HOUSTON, TX — A man in his 40s died early Friday after his motorcycle was struck by a wrong-way vehicle on Interstate 69 in Houston’s Montrose area, according to ABC13.

The fatal wreck occurred on the inbound lanes of I-69 (Southwest Freeway) before Shepherd Drive. It was first reported shortly before 2:00 a.m.

Houston Police said the man was operating a motorcycle when he was hit head-on by an SUV and killed.

The motorcycle and the SUV, which is believed to have first entered the 527 Spur in the wrong direction, both caught on fire following the impact.

No one in the SUV was reported seriously hurt, but investigators said the wrong-way driver, who displayed signs of impairment at the scene, was given a field sobriety test.

A charge of intoxication manslaughter is pending review by the district attorney, who was called to process the scene and collect evidence.

All inbound lanes of the freeway were blocked off for an extended time, leading to delays in the area. The roadway was reopened shortly after 8:00 a.m.
