A fatal motorcycle accident Tuesday afternoon brought traffic to a standstill on eastbound I-30 as law enforcement officials and emergency personnel worked to investigate the scene, just east of the Hwy. 82 interchange near mile marker 198.
According to eye witness statements, the male driver of the motorcycle, identified as Timothy James Dubuisson, 33, of Atlanta, Texas was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed and passing other motorists on the highway shoulder when he collided with a stationary construction vehicle.
That section of I-30 is currently a work zone as crews work to resurface the roadway. According to the official DPS report, Dubuisson was in a closed off construction lane when he struck the parked truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Nancy Talley.
