A motorcycle rider who was trying to pass a tractor-trailer on a Parker County road Wednesday lost control, crashed and was run over, the Department of Public Safety reported.
Darrell Paul Young, 59, of Azle was northbound about 4:30 p.m. on Cattlebaron Drive, just north of White Settlement Road a few miles west of the Fort Worth city limits, trooper Ricky Hunter said.
When he tried to pass the truck, he struck a tire on the trailer and skidded. Young, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown under the trailer and run over.
Young was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck was not injured.
