EL PASO — Update: EL PASO - The weekend got off to a deadly start on our streets.
This afternoon, an 18-year-old man took his last ride on a motorcycle.
The accident took place on Del Monte St. and Wilcox Dr. There was no collision; police said the 18-year-old lost control of his motorcyle and flew off. We're told he was not wearing a helmet, and died at the scene.
"We believe speed was a factor, based on the evidence...We're not saying that extreme speed was a factor at this point, but we do believe, considering this is a 35 mile per hour zone, that speed was a factor,” said Chris Mears, with the El Paso Police Dept.
The El Paso Police Dept. doesn't believe alcohol played a role in the accident.
An investigation is underway.
