Motorcyclist killed in collision with SUV on Highway 6 near Voss

A motorcycle versus SUV accident happened last night in Fort Bend County on Highway 6 near Voss. Investigators say that an SUV was pulling out of a gas station and tried to cross Highway 6 across the motorcycle’s lane of travel, causing the motorcycle to slam into the side of the SUV. The male driver of the motorcycle, identified by DPS as 30-year old Thomas Lollar died at the scene; he was reportedly not wearing a helmet.

His 26-year old female passenger Charli Russell survived the wreck and was taken by life flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition. We wish her a successful recovery from her injuries. The driver of the SUV was not injured in the crash, but will be issued an at-fault citation, probably for failure to yield the right-of-way exiting a private drive.
