Young man killed in double-motorcycle, box truck wreck on I-10 in east Houston
HOUSTON, TX — A crash involving two motorcycles and a box truck last Tuesday afternoon in east Houston claimed the life of a 23-year-old man, according to the Houston Police Department.
The HPD’s Vehicular Crimes Division said the fatal accident occurred in the 12600 block of the East Freeway (Interstate 10) on November 21, at around 2:45 p.m.
An early investigation indicates that the victim, who was driving a red Kawasaki motorcycle, was traveling at a high rate of speed along with another motorcyclist on a blue Suzuki. As the motorcyclists drove between a white box truck and a big rig, the Kawasaki rear-ended the box truck. The force of the crash caused both the Kawasaki operator and the Suzuki operator to eject.
The operator of the Kawasaki succumbed to his injuries at the scene, confirmed paramedics with the Houston Fire Department.
First responders transported the operator of the Suzuki to a local hospital in stable condition.
An investigation remains ongoing, but officials say that the truck driver was determined to be not intoxicated at the time of the wreck.
