CROSBY – A Sunday outing turned tragic when a blue Harley-Davidson motorcycle tried to enter US 90 from the southbound feeder at the 2400 block.
Witnesses say some riders on bikes had been racing along on their way to an event closer to Houston at about 6:05 p.m. on July 22. Apparently, the motorcycle hit the guardrail marking the entrance to the highway.
The motorcycle was being driven by Martin Stephen McKinley and his sister-in-law, Aliecia Wright Pruitt, was riding behind him.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office report says, “Witnesses advised McKinley was traveling at a high rate of speed just prior to the crash, and that he had been drinking alcoholic beverages.”
