LONGVIEW, TX : Two men killed in separate Longview accidents Wednesday on Wednesday, January 11th 2017
It was a deadly day on the roads in one East Texas city as two people are killed in two separate crashes in Longview.
One thing both incidents had in common was that they involved motorcycles.
Just before 7 a.m. in the 4000 block of Highway 80, a man wearing dark clothing darted across the roadway, apparently trying to beat traffic.
"This was in the middle of the road so there was no crosswalk, no intersection. A pedestrian tried to run across the street and was hit by a motorcycle,
actually ran into a motorcycle," says Longview Police Officer Kristie Brian.
He was then hit by an oncoming car.
