While You Were Sleeping

On 4/14/09 at approximately 9:25 p.m. a group of motorcycles was traveling northbound on W. Loop 820 South approaching I-30. Two riders accelerated ahead of the group then slowed down. Two more riders accelerated ahead of the main group and came upon the first two that had slowed down. One of the riders was not able to slow down enough to avoid striking the rear of another motorcycle. That rider (26 year old black male) was ejected from his bike and died at the scene from the injuries that he sustained. The other rider (37 year old black male) of the motorcycle that he struck was transported to Harris Hospital and listed in stable condition. Both of the involved riders were wearing helmets and it is unknown at this time if alcohol or drugs were involved. (Thanks emailer)
