Motorcycle crash in Hutchinson County claims life of driver

A motorcycle accident near the intersection of FM 280 and FM 2171 claimed the life of Billy Duane Vinyard, 39, of Borger.

According to the report, Vinyard was traveling on his 2013 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic on April 19. He wasn't wearing a helmet, and he lost control of the motorcycle "due to unsafe speed for the curve in the roadway", which subsequently overturned the motorcycle.

Vinyard was pronounced dead by Justice of the Peace Shila Hart at 4:16 p.m.
