A Denton man was killed early Friday morning, when the motorcycle he was riding and a pickup collided, officials said.
Terry Bixler, 64, was traveling westbound on Windsor Drive on a 650 Suzuki motorcycle when he failed to stop at a red light and was struck by a southbound 1500 series Chevrolet pickup at the intersection of Windsor Drive and Elm Street after 5:30 a.m., said Officer Orlando Hinojosa, spokesman for the Denton police.
The man driving the pickup was not injured, police said.
Troy Taylor, chief death investigator for Denton County, said Bixler suffered severe head, chest and lower body injuries. Officials said Bixler was transported to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton, where he was pronounced dead at 5:52 a.m.
No charges will be filed against the driver of the pickup since he was not at fault in the accident, Hinojosa said.
