Two people died Sunday during a major accident involving a car and a motorcycle near Mall of the Mainland, a Texas City Police Department spokesman said.
The Texas City Police Department received notice from staff at a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital in Galveston Sunday evening that both motorcyclists died as a result of their injuries, spokesman Allen Bjerke said.
The driver was a 63-year-old male and the passenger was a 55-year-old female. The Galveston County Medical Examiners Office is withholding their names until family is notified, Bjerke said.
The accident happened when the motorcycle collided with a black Nissan Rouge attempting to turn into the mall parking lot, Bjerke said.
The 53-year-old driver and two passengers of the Nissan, aged 58 and 76, received only minor injuries, Bjerke said.
The investigation is ongoing, Bjerke said.
