Motorcycle Racing Incident Leads to Death, Jail

Just after 8 p.m. on Monday, two motorcycles were witnessed racing on Old Humble Pipeline Road near FM 1314.

A man who was outside feeding his horses witnessed the two motorcyclists speed by, only to sideswiped each other moments later and lose control. One of the vehicles, a 1974 Kawasaki, ran off the road and hit a pipe running across the ditch. The driver, identified as 55-year-old Craig Perkins Sr., then hit the edge of a driveway and was ejected from the motorcycle.

The other driver, Jeffery Michael Stansel, 34, ran off the road and struck a mailbox and real estate sign before coming to rest in the woods. Central Montgomery County Fire Department, whose station is located just around the corner, was first on the scene and found Stansel walking, but with road rash (severe scrapes from sliding across the ground).

Perkins was discovered moments later, and was immediately given CPR. Soon, MCHD arrived on the scene and determined Perkins was deceased. Montgomery County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack arrived on the scene and pronounced Perkins dead and ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport Perkins to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.

Stansel was taken to the hospital but was released a short time later to the custody of DPS, booked into the Montgomery County Jail charged with Racing Causing Death.

    I just don’t understand why they arrested the one for death by racing …. both guys were over 18 and both knew it was wrong

    I think understanding there being a law against street racing would make this easier on you. Like realizing there’re laws against theft and rap rape and murder and arson, 18 or no. This clear those cobwebs out?

    Old school vs New school. That Kawasaki 1000 was a bad boy back in the day. Very sad…….racing is for the track, with proper safety equipment, not the street.

    Interesting phenomenon here. A lightning strike with no threatening weather in the area. Haven’t seen one of those vintage K-Whoppers in years. Would have liked to see it before it got bent.
