Motorcyclist killed in collision with animal

HONEY GROVE (ketr) - A bull that apparently wandered along a Northeast Texas highway is blamed for the death of a Red River County man Tuesday morning.

State Troopers say 43-year-old Timothy Martin of Bogata hit the animal while riding his motorcycle along Highway 82 in Honey Grove. Martin was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers say the bull was then run over by an 18 wheeler. It's possible the owner of the animal could be charged.
