Early in their investigation, police think he might have hit the back of an 18-wheeler while traveling west on the highway.

A man died Sunday morning when his motorcycle crashed into the back of a car that was attempting to make a turn, police said.

The name of the victim, a man believed to be 25 to 30 years old, had not been released pending notification of relatives.

Officers responded shortly after 6:30 a.m. Police believe the motorcyclist was traveling on East Altamesa Boulevard when a vehicle in front of him stopped to turn onto Will Rogers Boulevard.

The motorcyclist laid it down when he realized the vehicle had stopped but was unable to avoid hitting the back of that car, police said.
