Authorities say a motorcycle traveling more than 100-mph crashed early this morning in east Houston.
The motorcycle reportedly hit a guardrail at 4:30 a.m. on Federal Road near Greens Bayou Street, with the impact catapulting the driver and a passenger end over end.
Police say the female passenger became thrown into a drainage ditch waist-deep with water, and they believe she did not wear her seatbelt or any protective gear, ultimately perishing at the scene.
The male driver reportedly received a transport to an area hospital with major injuries, reports showing his leg may need to be amputated.
The driver reportedly wore a helmet, which authorities say likely saved his life.
Meanwhile, he may be facing criminal charges related to the high-speed crash; however, investigators say it is currently unknown currently if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
This is a developing story.
