Motorcycle Passenger

Created On: Friday, 17 Apr 2009, 6:28 AM CDT

DALLAS - A motorcycle driver was arrested Thursday night after an accident caused his passenger to fall from a high overpass bridge to the ground below.

The accident happened around 9:30 p.m. on the ramp from the westbound George Bush Turnpike to go southbound on the Dallas North Tollway.

The Department of Public Safety says the motorcycle driver, 21-year-old Lazaro Torres-Perez, attempted to pass a pickup truck on the right shoulder on the one-lane ramp.

The motorcycle hit the retaining wall, and the bike's passenger, Leah N. Sanchez, fell about 65 feet to the ground below.

Sanchez was taken to Parkland Hospital. Her condition is not known.

Torres-Perez was taken to Baylor hospital, then to the Collin County jail. He is expected to be charged with reckless driving.
