A Burleson man died about 8 p.m. Saturday after the motorcycle he was riding struck a tree south of Fort Worth, officials said.
Clint Batchelor, 42, died in the intensive care unit at John Peter Smith Hospital, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner. Batchelor was conscious and talking to sheriff’s deputies shortly after the crash, and they believed that they smelled alcohol on his breath, said Terry Grisham, a sheriff’s spokesman.
Grisham said Batchelor suffered serious internal injuries from the accident, which occurred in the 5300 block of Banks Road in unincorporated Tarrant County. Grisham said he did not know whether Batchelor was wearing a helmet or what kind of motorcycle he was riding.
