Houston police say they are looking into a fatal collision between a dirt bike and a car last week that left the bike’s driver dead.

The victim has been identified as 30-year-old Darryl Johnson, according to the Harris County medical examiner.

The Houston Police Department said Johnson was riding a dirt bike westbound at 8500 Williamsdell St. in Acres Homes just before 8 p.m. July 7 when he allegedly ran a stop sign at the intersection of Williamsdell and Marjorie Street and struck an oncoming vehicle. He was ejected from the bike, police said, and was later pronounced dead at an area hospital.

A preliminary investigation indicated the car had the right-of-way, according to police. Police said the car’s driver was questioned at the scene and released, though the investigation remains ongoing.
