Drunk Driver Strikes Motorcyclist on Seymour Highway

At 9:46 Friday evening Wichita County Sheriffs Deputies responded to a call about an intoxicated driver at 7882 Seymour Highway.

According Sheriff's Deputies a driver of a dark-colored SUV was heading eastbound on State Highway 258.  Witnesses say the driver got out of the SUV and stood in the road and seemed to be "out of it".  The driver then gets back into their SUV and hits a motorcyclist near the Kamay "Y" tossing them off into a bar ditch.  The SUV driver kept going and cuts across westbound traffic, drives through several fences and knocked over a 500 gallon propane tank of its pedestal.

The driver of the SUV had their blood drawn at the hospital to check for alcohol or any other substance that would have made her impaired.

The Wichita West VFD tried to do life saving procedures on the motorcyclist. Authorities tell Newschannel 6 the motorcyclist died from their injuries.

The driver who hit the motorcyclist has been identified as 46-year-old Melissa Trejo.

Trejo is in the Wichita County Jail and has been charged with driving while intoxicated.
