Rice, TX (May 22, 2020) – An early morning collision claimed one man’s life in Rice on Thursday, according to reports.
At around 6:55 a.m., on May 21, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 45.
Reports show that a maroon Freightliner truck tractor was traveling south in the right lane of the interstate followed by a blue 2019 Yamaha R3 motorcycle, driven by 25-year-old Jonathan Husky.
For unknown reasons, as the motorcyclist attempted to pass the Freightliner, the driver of the truck began to engage in sporadic driving behaviors, causing a collision between the two vehicles.
Husky was ejected from his vehicle and struck by a black 2008 Kia Optima.
Husky suffered fatal injuries and was declared deceased at the scene.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Jonathan Husky at this time.
