A 32-year-old motorcyclist died early Tuesday morning when he veered off Bluebonnet Boulevard and crashed, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Marvin Keith York II was driving north on Bluebonnet near Oliphant Road when he came to a curve and lost control at around 1:15 a.m. Tuesday, said Casey Rayborn Hicks, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman.
York’s Kawasaki ZX motorbike left Bluebonnet and started flipping as he was ejected from the bike, Hicks said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Intoxication is not initially suspected in the crash, Hicks said.
