Rider Hit and dragged over a Mile

HOUSTON -- A motorcyclist was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver Friday night on the East Freeway. Investigators said the cyclists’ bike was dragged for more than a mile after the collision.

The fatal accident occurred on Interstate 10 at Sheldon Road in east Harris County just before 8 p.m. Eyewitnesses told police that the van that struck the motorcycle rider erratically crossed over four lanes of traffic before striking the cyclist.

The unidentified man on the motorcycle was thrown from the bike. The driver of the van that struck him continued on driving and even exited the freeway for Market Street – about a mile away – with the bike stuck underneath the vehicle before he was stopped by other drivers who witnessed the collision.

Those fellow drivers blocked the van driver in until investigators arrived to take the man into custody.

The driver of the van, an unidentified man, was taken to a local hospital for drug and alcohol testing. No charges had been filed yet, but were expected

Because half the drivers on houston roads would get arrested or deported if their names were brought up.

RIP to the fallen.
Sad, this man had to lose his life , please be careful out there, although this rider could probably have done nothing to avoid, might have never seen what hit him.


I'm gonna go out on a limb here and bet money it was an uninsured, inlicensed illegal alien
thank you U.S. guvment for handing my country away, welcome to the new world folks.

your the FIRST person to apply a race to the phrase illegal alien in this thread. Nobody pointed a bony finger at a certain group of peoples except YOU.
FYI, there are tons and tons of different nationalities of illegal aliens, you just happened to stereotype a certain group that predominately lives in that area.
oooops, your bad.

but prolly true based on percentage of folks in that area.

yea i dont want to anyone off but wanna say. most stereotypes are there cause they are kinda true. there are hispanics that are illegal eating tacos like crazy and not speeking any english and there are trailer trash white folks that are in love with there chevy and there are black peeps that wear doo rags and and have cars nicer than there house. however and a big however. there are also hispanics that have bein here and are just as american as anyone else and a bilingual and enjoy pizza just as much as some of those fajita tacos. and whites that are civilized and hard working quiet citizens and blacks that are quiet hardworking people that are perfectly happy. maybe thats why u only hear about the stereotypical people. no one wants to talk about the others. but thats amerca for u and if u dont like it then
