CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The fatal accident happened just after noon today when police say a motorcyclist was driving eastbound on SPID from the Everhart exit. 

The motorcyclist then clipped the back of a stopped vehicle, was thrown into the next lane and got hit by another passing vehicle.

We're told that the vehicle dragged the 52-year-old motorcyclist for about 50 to 60 feet before stopping. The motorcyclist died on the scene. 

Police believe the motorcyclist was either weaving through traffic or was following too closely to the vehicle he clipped.

Officers want to remind drivers to be cautious when they're on the road, especially in this area that's known to have a lot of traffic. 

"You know, you still need to make sure that you're slowing down in this area. Especially on Fridays. You know, make sure you have a good following distance, and your speed is such so that you can stop if someone were to come to a sudden stop in front of you", stated Lieutenant Timothy Frazier.

Traffic was backed up all the way to Old Brownsville Road during the crash but cleared up within the hour. 

Police are still working on investigating the incident.
