According to DPS State Troopers, this all started when a motorcycle heading north sped past a trooper on I-45 who was writing a ticket. The motorcyclist tried to exit the freeway onto the feeder road and was hit by a Lexus pulling out of a parking lot of the Metro Park Center. The rider was thrown off the bike into a ditch and killed.
