Officials with the Fort Worth Police Department said that the incident happened at approximately 2:26 a.m. along westbound I-30 near Alta Mere Drive.

Both the rider and a woman from the car succumbed to fatal injuries. Right now, specifics remain unavailable as investigations continue.

Visibility, mechanical issues, alcohol or drugs, road conditions, speeds, medical problems, distraction, other vehicles that left the scene--if authorities aren't taking the time to consider all possible factors, can we be certain the victims' loved ones are going to get the answers they deserve?
