Ah- wasn't on the ship channel - on the bayou.

We'll never know what happened in that accident - he could have been hit by a car and gone over and the car took off; could have been going to fast, but how sharp is that curve?

The girl rider (or rider with pink helmet on black bike) was a separate accident, but nobody knows any more information about it. She was riding like an and rear-ended a car? Slow the down. This is the kind of accident that somebody will say the car 'cut her off'. When you're going 100+ on the freeway, and a car that's going 60-65 changes lanes, they're not cutting you off. You were nowhere to be seen when they checked and changed lanes.

And there's another rider who went over the ship channel bridge? That sucks. RIP rider.

Bad day for riders.
There were 5-6 crashes that happened from 10pm last night until now. 2 fatalities that are confirmed, and one was a pedestrian.

We had this 19 year old youngster named cliff, good kid. Not a kid. But younger than me attended the company Xmas party about five years ago or so. His girlfriend was with him. He ran out of gas on one of our busy hwys. Depending on where he was the gas station was on the other side. He went across to fill a gas can up and on the way back as he was crossing with some gas, got hit by three different vehicles in front of girlfriend that was waiting in the car who a few weeks later found out she was a couple weeks pregnant. It was sad. I know it wasn't the best choice to make but he did and got killed. Rip cliff. Anyway the ones mentioned in the thread rip.

No the driver that went over the bridge was on North Wayside south of I-10. Over buffalo bayou close the sewage treatment plant.

Have not see any more info on the girl rider .. I don't think it made the news.

But I have noticed reading this forum there are way more accident that get reported by news. Whether stupidity or an hat in a car causes the accident it still sucks when someone loses their life.
