The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating a fatality accident that occurred along FM 1446 outside of Waxahachie earlier this afternoon.

At around 4:30PM, multiple emergency responders were called to the scene of a single motorcycle accident on FM 1446 (also known as Old Buena Vista Road) near Lone Elm Road, west of Waxahachie in Ellis County.

DPS troopers say a motorcyclist driving a Harley Davidson was traveling west on FM 1446 when the driver failed to negotiate a left hand curve in the roadway.

The operator was ejected from the motorcycle and pronounced deceased at the scene.

The investigation is still in progress at this time. There is no additional information available.
