"Austin Police Say Hit-and-Run Driver Hit Motorcycle”
Fatal Motorcycle Wreck
The motorcycle crashed to the frontage road below the expressway.
A North Austin motorcycle collision on U.S. Hwy 183 killed the rider and left his motorcycle on the frontage road -- a mile away from where his body was found.
Police say Eric Laufer, 25, died at the scene. Laufer was the lead vocalist for Two Timin' Four, an Austin rockabilly/root music band. The motorcycle was traveling northbound at the time of the crash. It happened around 4 a.m. Thursday, just east of Burnet Road on U.S. 183.
Investigators are now looking for the vehicle they say struck the motorcycle and then left the scene.
The victim was wearing a helmet and other protective gear.
Before they were "Four"...
