According to Special Traffic Investigators with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, the victim's body was severed after his motorcycle slammed into a guardrail.

Deputy Angelica Becera said the motorcyclist was thrown about a hundred yards after he lost control of his bike on I-10 near the Eastlake Exit.

"Right now, our preliminary investigations indicate that the motorcycle was traveling on Interstate-10 at a high rate of speed, according to a witness, and veered off to the north portion of the shoulder and lost control of the motorcycle and struck a guardrail. Due to the massive impact, it resulted in the gentleman's death" said Becerra.

Becerra said the victim was wearing a helmet.  He died at the scene.  The Sheriff's Office has not released his name.

A witness who was at the scene called our newsroom and said he saw two motorcycles racing before one of them lost control and hit a guard rail.  That witness also said the victim was a Fort Bliss soldier in his 30's.

We will miss you. You impacted so many people in amazing ways.

The motorcyclist was a UTEP student as well working on his masters degree and at one time was a former ROTC cadet of mine until prior to the summer we had to disenroll him from the program. He was a well like individual and was full of life, always working hard to give his best. He is going to be dearly missed. May God rest his soul.
