DPS officials investigating motorcycle fatality

SHALLOWATER, TX (KCBD) -

DPS officials have identified the man involved in a fatal motorcycle accident early Saturday morning.

Lawrence Scott Johnston, 50, of Shallowater was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials said he was traveling northbound on F.M. 179, just south of Shallowater. The road curves to the right, but officials said Johnston continued straight, heading the wrong way on the road, eventually running into a tree.

His family had reported him missing to the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office around 4 a.m. Saturday morning. Officials said his family began searching for him and found his body about four hours later.

Troopers said Johnston was not wearing a helmet.

This investigation is ongoing as officials wait for Johnston's autopsy results.
