Police are trying to identify the driver of a pickup pulling a trailer that was involved in a fatal motorcycle crash this week.

Moreno was eastbound on a 2005 Harley-Davidson when he hit the back of a homemade-style trailer without taillights, police said.

The pickup didn’t stop and continued eastbound, police said.

Moreno was not wearing a helmet, police said. He was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center.

Moreno’s death was the ninth traffic fatality in the city this year.
