The report lady said on KHOU there was a helmet. I'm guessing no jacket, boots or gloves.


I saw it was just a little bit in front of me and I would be able to get around it. I thought to myself,, hmm.. it must have just happened. I merged into the next lane and tried to see what cars have wrecked but only saw some cars pulled off to the shoulder and a big empty space on the freeway. I got closer and saw a young man laying in the middle of the freeway NOT MOVING. His face, arms, legs had skin peeled off his body. His clothing reminded me of swim team bathing suit- black jammers with a green stripe down the side. I wondered if he had been thrown from a car but then I saw someone holding a motorcycle helmet. There was a Fire-Rescue unit but no one was doing anything. Just standing there looking at the guy laying in the road. I wondered where his motorcycle was. He was just laying there not moving with his right arm in a weird position sticking up in the air

Will we ever see what actually caused the accident? Someone merging didn't see him? I get on right there every day coming home from work, it's a constant cluttered mesh of people quickly merging

Judging from your description, it sounds like he was run over by a vehicle
