“It is a fatality involving a motorcycle. Officers are currently in the process of getting statements from witnesses and working on the investigation,” Robinson said.

One of the witnesses was Heather Rainey, who lives near the corner of Williams Avenue and Elmo where the accident happened.

“I live a couple of houses over and I was inside and my dad (Brad Francis) and I both said ‘he was flying’ and then my dad heard the crash and went outside and that is when we saw him lying on the ground. He hit another car,” Rainey said. “By the time we called 911 other people had called also.”

Rainey said her and her father saw the vehicle that the motorcyclist ran into.

“They were actually in the middle of turning off of Elmo onto Williams and he hit them. The poor people driving had a little girl with them and she saw everything,” Rainey said.

Robinson said HPD would not have any more information to release at this time as the investigation is ongoing.
