An accident involving a motorcycle and an 18-wheeler in East Parker County resulted in the death of an Azle man on Wednesday.

Darrell Paul Young, 59, of Azle, was traveling north on his motorcycle on Cattlebaron Drive around 4:30 p.m., according to Department of Public Safety Trooper Ricky Hunter.

The 2007 BDM motorcycle attempted to pass a 2001 Peterbuilt truck tractor that was towing a semi trailer, Hunter said.  

The motorcycle lost control, struck a tire on the trailer and began to skid on its side. 

Young, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown under the trailer and run over.  

He was pronounced deceased at the scene by EMS personnel. 

The driver of the Peterbuilt, Russell Wayne Dunlap, 49, of Jacksboro was not injured, Hunter said.
