Lubbock Emergency workers cleared the scene of a deadly accident on the northbound access road of I-27 near 66th Street around 9pm Friday night.
The accident happened just after 6pm. Lubbock Police say 51-year-old Daniel Ray Shough died after he lost control of his Ninja motorcycle. Police say it was a single vehicle accident, but co-workers we spoke with believe that Shough may have had to brake for some reason because of the skid marks on the road. Shough then lost control.
A co-worker discovered what had happened after Shough's wife called and said her husband had not come home from work. That's when the co-worker drove the route home and found the accident.
Shough worked at Good Times Power Sports as a mechanic for 20 years. A co-worker we spoke with told us that Shough was an experienced rider.
Shough leaves behind a wife and step-daughter.
