HPD patrol officers responded to a crash at near the intersection of Federal Road and Fleming.  Upon arrival, they learned the crash involved two people on a motorcycle.  A preliminary investigation determined the male motorcyclist was operating the Harley-Davidson motorcycle at a high rate of speed when he failed to maintain a single lane, left the roadway, and struck a guardrail.  Both he and his female passenger (victim) were thrown from motorcycle into a drainage ditch.  The operator of the motorcycle was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital and is expected to survive his injuries.

There are no charges at this time, as the investigation is continuing.
