Texas Department of Public Safety officials responded to a motorcycle accident Saturday evening on U.S. Hwy. 84 between Maydelle and Rusk in which a truck was found to have been driving on the wrong side of the road, according to Trooper Tom Bledsoe.

The driver of the motorcycle, Johnny Paul (J.B.) Berry, 46, of Maydelle, was killed in the accident, and his wife/passenger, Susie Berry, was transported to a Tyler hospital with serious injuries.

“The pickup and the motorcycle were traveling in opposite directions on U.S. 84. The truck was on the wrong side, and they side swiped each other on the right sides,” Bledsoe said. “The man made impact with the truck’s toolbox, and the bike fell over.”

Bledsoe said Trooper Justin Stanley investigated the accident, but to the best of his knowledge, Susie Berry remained in serious condition in Tyler.
