Police say a motorcyclist slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler on the Northwest Freeway last night.

The accident happened on Highway 290 at Fairbanks North Houston. The truck never stopped and police say the driver might not have realized the biker hit him.

Witnesses say the biker was weaving in and out of traffic and might have been going 100 miles per hour when the accident happened. The biker was taken to the hospital in serious, but stable condition.

The inbound lanes of the freeway were closed for two hours.
