Corpus Christi Police responded to a crash involving a motorcycle and three different vehicles at 9:45 PM along South Padre Island Drive East just before Airline Road on April 17. While en route to the call, officers were told that bystanders were performing CPR on the driver of the motorcycle.
Due to the seriousness of the motorcyclist’s injuries, Corpus Christi Police Traffic Investigators were requested. The crash investigation revealed that the 27-year-old driver of the motorcycle was traveling at an unsafe speed along the freeway access road when it struck the rear passenger side of a Chevrolet Tahoe that was slowing due to traffic congestion.
The motorcycle then veered off the access road, striking a raised curb, and the driver was ejected. The motorcycle, traveling without a driver, continued, crashing into a van.
The motorcycle driver impacted on a car that was waiting to exit the Golden Corral Restaurant and was seriously injured. The freeway access road between South Staples Street and Airline Road was closed for nearly two hours while officers conducted the crash investigation.
The motorcycle driver was transported to Spohn Memorial Hospital by CCFD EMS and died from his injuries just after 1 AM this morning. At this time, no charges are expected to be filed against anyone involved in the crash.
