Police identify man killed on Highway 6 in Navasota

NAVASOTA, Tex. (KBTX)- Navasota police have identified the motorcyclist killed Friday morning in the northbound lanes of Highway 6 near the SH 105 exit.

Craig Allen Sweed, 55, of Washington County, was pronounced dead after his bike collided with a pickup truck around 6:30 a.m., according to Navasota Police Chief Shawn Myatt.

The accident remains under investigation and it's too soon to say if the driver will be issued a citation, said the chief. Police say the pickup's driver performed CPR to try and save him, but Sweed passed away at the scene of the crash.

Motorists were detoured off the northbound lanes of the highway for several hours Friday as investigators gathered evidence and details for the report.

College Station police responded to assist with the accident reconstruction phase of the investigation.
