An Austin man died early Sunday after he lost control of his motorcycle while running from police in San Marcos.
Charles Brandon Knowles, 25, was seen driving northbound on Interstate 35 at “a very high rate of speed” at 2:56 a.m., said Melissa Millecam, the city’s spokesperson. With San Marcos police in pursuit, Knowles exited the interstate and began speeding through local streets and then back to the interstate via C.M. Allen Parkway.
While traveling southbound on the interstate access road, he attempted to reverse course and head north using the turnaround at Texas 123. He was thrown from his bike and sustained fatal injuries.
The police department’s collision investigation team is investigating the fatality.Email | Print
