SUGAR LAND - An 18-year-old boy was killed Saturday night in a deadly crash in Sugar Land.

Police said around 10:15 p.m. an SUV was traveling westbound on Highway 90. The driver of the SUV attempted to make a left turn at Alkire Lake Drive and turned in front of a car and a motorcycle.

The driver of the other car was able to slam on his brakes and avoid hitting the SUV.

The teenage motorcyclist also tried to stop, but couldn't, and ended up slamming into the side of the SUV. The force of the impact caused the SUV to roll over.

The elderly couple in the SUV weren't hurt in the crash, and weren't taken to the hospital. The young motorcycle rider, however, was transported to Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital in critical condition. The 18-year-old later died from his injuries.

According to Sugar Land Police, the elderly male driver saw the motorcycle but misjudged the distance between the two vehicles when he turned in front of the rider.

No charges were expected to be filed against the driver of the SUV. Police said the elderly man would most likely receive just a traffic citation for his involvement in the deadly accident.
