A Kilgore man died in a single-vehicle wreck at Danville Road and Danville Drive at approximately 10:30 p.m. Friday night.
William Harrison Knauer, 30, was killed while driving a motorcycle.
Asst. Chief Roman Roberson of Kilgore Police Department said the crash occurred due to the operator of the motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed and losing control of the vehicle.
Road conditions did not appear to be a factor in the crash, Roberson noted.
No further details on the crash were available at press time Tuesday. Roberson said KPD’s investigation is ongoing, and more information will be available upon its conclusion.
Memorial services are scheduled for Knauer at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7, at First Baptist Church Kilgore.
