A Weatherford man was killed in a wreck involving a motorcycle Wednesday morning.

DPS responded to the call of a two-vehicle crash on State Highway 171, south of Doyle Road, in Parker County around 10:30 a.m.

"The preliminary investigation shows that a black 2006 Yamaha motorcycle was traveling south on SH171 and a blue 2004 Peterbilt truck tractor with a black 2007 Etnyre tractor trailer was traveling north on SH 171," Corsicana Highway Patrol Staff Sgt. Sara Warren said. "For an as of yet unknown reason, the motorcycle veered into the northbound lane of SH171 striking the front left of the truck tractor."

The driver of the motorcycle, 63 year-old, Jimmy Cain, of Weatherford was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck tractor driver, 55 year-old, Samuel Morrison, of Tolar was not injured.

The investigation is ongoing and there is no other information available at this time, Warren said.
