A motorcyclist was pronounced deceased just after 1 pm Sunday. The rider was northbound when he lost control in a curve, hit a guardrail and went airborne.. The crash happened between FM 1375 and FM1791 in the Sam Houston National Forest. Montgomery County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace responded to the scene to perform an inquest and ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy. DPS Troopers on the scene have not yet notified the next of kin. The male who was wearing a helmet was in his mid 20’s. This area of FM 149 is known by many motorcycle groups due to all the curves and hills. Local residents say on weekends especially Harley’s come by just enjoying a nice easy ride but the sportbikes come by traveling close to 100mph.
