A 25-year-old Victoria man died Tuesday when his motorcycle collided with a pickup on U.S. Highway 183 in Gonzales County.
Seth Hidinger was traveling south about 3:45 p.m. on the federal highway near County Road 197 outside Gonzales when a 2009 Chevrolet pickup driven by Joel Lawhorn, of Gonzales, entered the federal highway from a private drive, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety report.
Hidinger's 1997 Harley Davidson motorcycle struck the truck. He was not wearing a helmet, according to the report.
Hidinger, an oil-field worker, was taken by helicopter to San Antonio Military Medical Center, where he later died.
The crash remains under investigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
