Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) — On Friday night, family and friends of Jacob Levy honored his life with a vigil in north Austin.

APD says that on Monday, Mitchell Jacob Levy, 25, was riding his motorcycle toward the 1600 block of West Howard Lane around 9:23 p.m. They said he lost control of the vehicle just before the intersection of Metric Boulevard and Howard Lane.

When Levy lost control he slid into the side of white Ford Explorer turning south onto Metric Boulevard. The impact knocked the Explorer onto its side.

The driver of the Ford, Lisa Lene Aiken, was taken to the Dell Seton Medical Center. She was later arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. However, police say her intoxication was not a factor in the crash.
