Two people died in motor vehicle accidents in Hunt County during the weekend of Aug. 28-29, the Texas Department of Public Safety said. A motorcyclist died Saturday on the west side of Greenville, and the driver of an SUV died Sunday near Caddo Mills.

Officers responded to a call of a crash near Greenville at U.S Hwy. 69 and County Road 1058 at about 8:35 p.m. Saturday, Texas DPS Sgt. Kyle Bradford said.

“Preliminary investigations indicates that a custom built motorcycle was traveling south on U.S. 69 and for a yet to be determined reason the motorcycle made an abrupt stop before making a turn, and was struck from behind by an Infinity SUV,” Bradford said. “The driver of the a Infinity was not injured, the motorcyclist was pronounced deceased on scene.”

Sunday’s crash was reported at about 11:57 a.m., along the Interstate 30 service road near FM 36, south of Caddo Mills.

“Preliminary investigation indicates that a Hyundai Santa Fe was traveling eastbound on the Interstate 30 service road,” Bradford said. “For a unknown reason the driver exited the service road drove on the shoulder and overturned several times. The driver was pronounced deceased on scene.”
