Fort Worth woman killed in Arlington motorcycle wreck

A 44-year-old Fort Worth woman was killed late Saturday when she was thrown from a motorcycle.

Police said the driver of the 1997 Harley-Davidson, Juan Garza Jr., 51, of Euless, was charged with intoxication manslaughter.

Officers said the motorcycle was eastbound in the 1100 block of Interstate 20 West in Arlington when Garza apparently lost control and the bike went into a slide just before 10 p.m.

Passenger Christa Luttrell, who was not wearing a helmet, slid across three lanes of traffic.

The Tarrant County medical examiner's office said Luttrell suffered serious head injuries. Luttrell was transported to Medical Center Arlington where she died at 10:22 p.m.

Garza was treated for minor injuries at John Peter Smith Hospital. An investigation led to charges of intoxication manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.

Garza was being held in the Arlington jail. As of late Sunday, bail had not yet been set.

This was the 14th traffic fatality this year in Arlington.
