KATY, Texas – A motorcyclist was killed Tuesday in a crash on the Grand Parkway at Mueschke Road, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
The two-vehicle crash happened at 12:59 p.m. when a 2018 Harley Davidson motorcycle crashed into the back of a 2013 red Ford Mustang while traveling westbound through the 18800 block of the West Grand Parkway North, in the right lane, deputies said.
Investigators determined that the Ford slowed down and came to a complete stop due to traffic caused by an unrelated crash in the eastbound lanes of the 18800 block of the West Grand Parkway North. Investigators said the motorcyclist slammed on her motorcycle brakes but was unable to come to a complete stop before crashing into the rear of the Ford.
The motorcyclist was then ejected from her bike, deputies said. The woman was wearing a helmet during that crash but was pronounced dead at the scene, deputies said. The woman was described to be 50 years old, officials said.
The westbound lanes were slowed due to the accident.
The driver of the Ford remained at the scene and showed no signs of impairment, deputies said. The crash is being investigated by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Vehicular Crimes Division.
