MONTGOMERY COUNTY, TX (KTRK) -- Investigators say the teenage driver of a motorcycle was killed when he was struck by a driver in east Montgomery County.

The teenage boy was riding around 5am on FM 1485 westbound at Roadway Drive when he was struck by a vehicle. He died in the middle of the road.

Sheriff's deputies then say the driver of a Chevrolet pickup truck struck the boy's motorcycle, causing him to lose control, gliding up a ditch before crashing into a gas station fence.

Deputies shut down the road, and ordered funeral directors to transport the teen's body to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.

DPS has yet to release the name of the victim. There is no word on the other drivers.
