A Kyle man has been identified as the victim in a fatal single-vehicle motorcycle wreck that occurred late Sunday on FM 150 west near the intersection of FM 2770.
Jeff Barnett, Kyle Police chief, said the wreck occurred around 10:40 p.m. Sunday near the Sonic Drive-In located in the 1700 block of Rebel Drive, also known as FM 150 west.
The motorcycle, operated by Daniel Rodriguez, 41, of Kyle, was traveling westbound on FM 150 when it veered off of the road and struck a trailer parked in the grass, Barnett said in a statement. Rodriguez was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Rodriguez was transported to Seton Medical Center Hays where he was later pronounced by Hays County Pct. 2 Justice of the Peace Beth Smith, who also has ordered an autopsy. Next of kin has been notified at this time, according to a press release.
Kyle Police closed FM 150 for several hours as officers conducted their investigation. Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident.
