Witnesses told officers the man on the moped was struck by a truck in the intersection of Harrison Avenue and the I-10 service road in Beaumont just after 7:30 Tuesday morning.

Investigators say the driver of the moped was rushed to nearby Christus Hospital Saint Elizabeth with severe head injuries. He was not wearing a helmet.

The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital to submit blood alcohol samples, as is required by law. No charges have been filed at this time.

Police say this case remains open.
