Kaitlyn Gunnels has tentatively been identified as the young woman who was killed in a motorcycle accident this past Sunday (February 16, 2013) in Montgomery, TX. Gunnels was reportedly riding on the back of a motorcycle driven by 25-year old Cory Ross Downing at about 6:00 p.m. on Sunday when Downing lost control and crashed, ejecting Gunnels from the bike.
Downing fled the scene, reports said, and paramedics arrived at the crash site later but declared Gunnels dead from her injuries. Texas DPS troopers apprehended Downing a short time later and arrested him on charges of an accident involving serious bodily injury or death. The accident is still being investigated, DPS reported.
