A Joshua man died in a motorcycle accident near the intersection of Interstate 20 and Hulen Street early Wednesday morning, authorities said.
Joshua Belvin, 28, expressed a love for motorcycles on a Facebook page that appears to have been his.
Last November he posted an image of a motorcyclist captioned, “If I die riding my bike, don’t cry for me, instead smile for me and know I died doing what I love and with a smile on my face.”
Police had few details to report about the accident but said that it appeared there were no other vehicles involved and that the motorcycle struck a curb, spokesman Bradley Perez said.
In a later update, Perez said the accident occurred when the motorcyclist was exiting to Hulen Street and failed to control his speed, losing control of the vehicle after hitting the curb. He was pronounced dead at the scene, Perez said.
The accident was reported to police at about 2:45 a.m. Wednesday, police said.
Traffic investigators were still going over the scene on the eastbound service road of I-20 shortly before 6 a.m., Perez said.
