Another RIP-Conroe 18 wheeler

Hope it's not a repost...

A buddy of mine knew him...Josh Houle

http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/couri...cc4c002e0.html

Quote:
A motorcyclist attempting to beat an 18-wheeler through a Conroe intersection just before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday died when his motorcycle hit the truck, officials said.

Witnesses at the scene said the 36-year-old motorcyclist, whose name was not released late Tuesday night pending notification of next of kin, was doing "burnouts" in the parking lot of Kroger and Incredible Pizza, located west of I-45 at South Loop 336. He then took off at a high rate of speed and attempted to beat a Landstar 18-wheeler through the intersection around 9:24 p.m.

The 18-wheeler was southbound on River Pointe Drive, turning east onto South Loop 336 and was struck by the motorcyclist, said Sgt. Robert Engel, of the Conroe Police Department. The driver of the truck, identified as Thomas McClure by a Landstar representative at the scene, was not injured, but was transported to Conroe Regional Medical Center complaining of chest pains.

The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet. No charges are anticipated pending the outcome of the CPD investigation, Engel said.

Upon arriving on location, EMS confirmed a single patient with injuries "incompatible with life" at 9:28 p.m., according to EMS information.

I feel bad for his kids,

That was such a dumb move that caused so much damage, I pray for him, family, and the 18 wheeler driver with that for remaining of their lives.
