Motorcyclist killed in 6 vehicle accident caused by hit-and-run driver

The driver of a pickup truck caused a six vehicle accident last night that killed a motorcyclist, then fled the scene before the police arrived. The crash happened around 10:30 p.m. on the East Freeway in Houston. A 2006 GMC Sonoma apparently became impatient due to backed-up traffic and decided to drive on the inside shoulder. The truck struck a motorcycle, causing the motorcycle to collided with a 2014 Dodge Dart passenger car; the motorcyclist slid into the center lane of the roadway, while the motorcycle hit a wall and caught fire. The GMC Sonoma picked then rear-ended a 2011 Cadillac CTS; the Cadillac then hit the Dodge Dart and also a 2014 Ford F-150. The motorcyclist was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he died; the two men in the GMC pickup fled the scene on foot.
