HOUSTON, TX – A man died early this morning in southeast Houston on the Gulf Freeway after his motorcycle collided with a sign, according to KTRK.
The accident occurred in the 1200 block of Gulf Freeway, near Fuqua Street, at about 4:15 a.m. as a motorcyclist, whose identity was not immediately made public, was attempting to merge from the feeder road to the main lanes of the roadway.
The victim then collided with a sign, leading to his death.
He was reportedly not wearing a helmet and had been to a bar before the accident had occurred. Police, however, did not state if they believe he had been under the influence at the time of the collision.
The crash caused authorities to close Gulf Freeway for multiple hours this morning for the investigation of the accident.
