A motorcyclist lost control on FM 1960 overnight and was hit by a pickup truck in northwest Houston.

Police say the motorcyclist was leaving a shopping center parking lot near Tomball Parkway when something went wrong, sending him into oncoming traffic.

"Apparently lost control of his motorcycle, crossed three lanes of traffic and went into the eastbound lanes," said Sgt. J.R. Roberts with the Houston Police Department.

The motorcyclist was thrown from his bike and police say that is when the pickup truck hit him. He died at the scene.

Authorities say the driver of the pickup truck will not face charges.
