Just after midnight Friday night a motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on North Loop 610 attempted to exit northbound on Eastex Freeway. The motorcycle struck the wall of the overpass, went over the wall and dropped almost seventy feet. Both motorcycle and driver landed in a fenced in secure area in which TXDOT has pump equipment for the freeways. The driver, a black male in his early 20’s was dead at the scene. He has not yet been identified.
