A man and woman who were on the motorcycle were both transported by EMS with serious injuries. The driver, 52-year-old Michael Vaughn Williams passed away from his injuries at 11 p.m. Sunday. The passenger, Angela Friar, is still in the hospital with serious injuries, according to officials with the Lubbock Police Department.
