A motorcyclist died after crashing into the wall of a ramp and then falling 60 feet over a wall onto the South Loop on Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The 22-year-old man, who has not been identified, was driving his motorcycle at a high rate of speed around 3:35 p.m. Saturday at the 8300 block of the South Loop eastbound, according to the Houston Police Department.
The man lost control of the cycle and struck the right wall on the ramp. The impact caused him to fall over the wall onto the Loop. He died at the scene. His identity is pending verification with the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
Witnesses say no other vehicles were involved.
