A 53-year-old man died Friday after crashing his motorcycle into a La Marque fire truck stopped on Interstate 45.
A motorist traveling in front of Leroy Leger Jr., of Thibodaux, La., moved to the right to avoid the fire truck in the inside lane near mile marker 8, authorities said.
Leger's rear brakes locked up and he crashed into the fire truck, authorities said.
La Marque police officers and firefighters were investigating a previous crash, authorities said. Firefighters had turned on the fire trucks emergency lights, authorities said.
A Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office investigator pronounced Leger dead at the scene about 12:20 a.m. Saturday.
No first responders were hurt in the crash.
