Biker doing “wheelies” crashes, closes Dallas-area freeway
SOUTHLAKE, Texas (AP) — Police in a Dallas-Fort Worth suburb blame a crash that shut a freeway on stunts being performed by a group of about 100 motorcyclists.
Authorities in Southlake say one of the bikers popping wheelies on the Texas State Highway 114 crashed near the border of Southlake and Grapevine. That caused a traffic backup for about an hour when the freeway had to be closed.
At least one person was hurt in the wreck Saturday but the severity of the injury wasn’t immediately known.
