Benjamin Strickland Identified in Motorcycle Accident Involving Two Trucks on 35 Freeway in Belton
BELTON, TX (September 30, 2022) – Police identified 27-year-old Benjamin Jaquez Strickland as the victim who died in a motorcycle accident on 35 Freeway on September 28.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the collision happened at Mile Marker No. 294 at approximately 6:04 AM.
Based on a report, Strickland was riding a Suzuki GSXR 750 motorcycle at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. As he approached a 2018 Peterbilt towing a semi-trailer and a 2015 Kenworth three axle straight truck in the right lane, he drove his motorcycle between the two trucks.
Subsequently, he struck the left side of the straight truck, veered into the rear tandem of the truck tractor’s trailer axles, and struck the outside tire of the fifth axle. The impact threw him off the motorcycle, causing the rear tandem axle of the straight truck to run him over.
As a result, Justice of the Peace Cliff Coleman pronounced him dead at the scene.
The crash remains under investigation. At this time no further information is available.
We offer our sincere condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Benjamin Jaquez Strickland.
