Just before 730pm a crash near the intersection of Roadway and FM 1485 killed a motorcycle driver. According to witnesses several vehicles were westbound on FM 1485 at Roadway. One vehicle slowed to turn right into the Valero parking lot. This caused the remaining westbound vehicles to stop. As the car was turning in a driver driving a Chevrolet 2500 pickup was pulling out to go east bound. As he did, a motorcycle which had been at the back of the line of the westbound cars waiting, pulled into the eastbound lane at a high rate of speed passing those vehicles. The driver did not see the pickup pulling out and slammed into the rear of the pickup. The impact was so great that it bent the frame of the pickup. The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead at the scene by Montgomery County Justice of the Peace James Metts. He ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.
FM 1485 reopened at 10:30 pm.
