JEFFERSON COUNTY - Traffic lanes are back open on Interstate 10 near Gator Country after two crashes caused lane closures for a few hours Sunday.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said just before 2:30 Sunday afternoon, a Harley Davidson motorcycle was heading eastbound on I-10 when the driver lost control and was ejected.
The victim has been identified as Benjamin Todd Vienne, 41, of Louisiana. He died from his injuries at the scene.
Just a few minutes after the motorcycle driver crashed, a three-vehicle collision happened in the same area.
Troopers say the secondary collision happened near Taylor's Bayou, also in the eastbound lanes.
The extent of injuries for those involved is unknown at this time.
