Shannon Casada.

In a deadly weekend for motorcyclists, a man was thrown from his ride over the weekend in a collision with an SUV at the intersection of Buckner and Northwest Highway. The name of the driver and the deceased have not yet been released. It’s the second high-profile death in six months on the neighborhood thoroughfare, after a teenage driver lost control of his vehicle and collided with oncoming traffic, killing the driver of one vehicle.
