ABILENE (AP) — A Sulphur Springs man was killed in a motorcycle crash in Taylor County Saturday.
Kenneth Eugene Pier, 53, was riding his motorcycle westbound on the south access road of Interstate 20 near mile marker 277 at Tye at nearly 2:30 p.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve, according to a report from the Department of Public Safety.
Pier's motorcycle veered off the roadway and overturned before landing in a ditch, Senior Trooper Sparky Dean said, adding Pier was not wearing a helmet. Pier was taken to Hendrick Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
The crash is being investigated by Trooper Justin Tabor.
