Cyclist dead after police chase
Dead biker is a Lufkin man
A Lufkin motorcyclist died after a brief chase with police.
The Houston Chronicle reports that Joshuah Cavins, 27, was thrown from his bike early Saturday in Kemah.
A news release says that Kemah officers saw two motorcycle riders run a red light just after midnight. When officers initiated a traffic stop on both bikes, one motorcyclist complied, but Cavins fled.
After a pursuit, officers lost sight of him. A short time later, his wrecked cycle was found in a ditch. Cavins was found unconscious about 75 feet from the mangled bike and later died from his injuries.
