Motorcyclist killed after being ejected off Grapevine overpass

Just before 2:30 a.m. on July 8, 2023, the driver was traveling westbound on I-635 when he lost control on the exit to southbound SH-121. According to a witness, the man hit the retaining wall and was ejected from the motorcycle on the overpass.

Grapevine Police and Fire personnel discovered the driver’s body near a creek bed below. The man was pronounced deceased on the scene. The motorcycle’s gas tank was on fire, so crews extinguished the flames and shut down the overpass for approximately three hours to investigate the accident and clear any debris.

The medical examiner will identify the driver.
