Karrell Taylor, a 25-year old motorcyclist, was killed Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 2, when he collided with a truck near Willis and Washington near SR 167.

Police say that Taylor was driving a motorcycle when he collided with a truck at about 2:39 p.m.

Numerous traffic units arrived within minutes, and found the victim had struck a truck that was turning to get onto SR 167 from Willis.

Life-saving efforts were immediately undertaken but unsuccessful, and the motorcyclist was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The driver of the truck was cooperative and consented to a blood draw. He did not appear to be under the influence of any substance. Preliminary information indicates the truck had a flashing yellow arrow, but the motorcyclist may have been traveling at an excessive speed.

Traffic investigators processed the scene and collected evidence as they continue their investigation.
