AUSTIN (KXAN) - For the second time in a matter of weeks, tragedy struck the same family.
Jack Brown Henry, 59, died after crashing his motorcycle into a car early Tuesday on a rain-slicked Guadalupe Street. The driver of a car involved in the deadly wreck received a citation for failing to yield the right of way.
Henry is the father of Alex Henry-Ballew , an 18-year-old who died after falling about 20 feet and striking a rock along the Barton Creek Greenbelt trail on May 30.
On Tuesday, police said a black 2012 Honda Accord was heading south in the 3900 block of Guadalupe Street just after 6 a.m. when Henry, on a 2009 Honda Shadow motorcycle, heading north in the inside lane, ran into the car.
The car was reportedly turned left in front of the motorcycle at 39th Street, causing the bike to run into the car's right front corner.
EMS took Henry to University Medical Center Brackenridge, but he died at the hospital about a half-hour later.
Police are investigating but said Henry was wearing a helmet.
