Fatal Motorcycle Accident on Gulf Freeway

Houston police are continuing their investigation of a motorcycle accident which claimed the life of the rider on Houston’s Gulf Freeway.

The accident occurred in the 7300 block of the Gulf Freeway -- also known as South Interstate Highway 45 -- about 11:55 p.m. on Sunday, April 24th.

Witnesses reported that the male victim was operating a blue Suzuki motorcycle northbound on the Gulf Freeway at a high rate of speed near the 610 Loop. The victim evidently lost control of the motorcycle as he approached the exchange and veered across all three lanes into the grass. He then careened into a guardrail, struck a concrete column under the loop and then went back in the main lanes of the freeway.

The male victim, whose name was not released, was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. His identity is pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
