A motorcycle rider died while trying to avoid being pulled over for a traffic ticket in Kemah. The motorcycle ended up crashing at Kipp Avenue and 10th. Around midnight, a Kemah police officer tried to pull over two motorcycles for running a red light on Highway 146, but they took off in different directions.

The body of one of the motorcycle riders was later found in some bushes.

It appears he was going too fast and lost control when the road curved. He crashed and died at the scene.

Officers did not find the other motorcycle rider.
