Jeffrey Young Killed in Granite Shoals, TX, Motorcycle Accident
Granite Shoals, TX -- January 20, 2017, Jeffrey Dewayne Young was killed following an accident where his motorcycle crashed on the side of the road.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that the accident occurred around 11:30 p.m. about 2 miles outside of Granite Shoals.
Reports indicate that 32-year-old Young was traveling northbound on FM 1431 on a Kawasaki motorcycle. For reasons that aren't entirely clear, the vehicle lost control and swerved out of its traffic lane.

Authorities have yet to determine exactly what factors contributed to the accident. They say investigations are ongoing.
