A late night motorcycle accident on I-10 claimed the life of a Beaumont teen, 19, said the Department of Public Safety.

The teen was speeding on his motorcycle in the eastbound lanes when he hit a truck near the Hamshire Road exit, according to troopers.

The teen was thrown from his bike on impact and pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a helmet.

A study released earlier this year in the Southern Medical Journal determined the repeal of the universal helmet law in 1997 had significant adverse effect on motorcyclist fatalities in Texas.
