The crash happened just before 7 p.m. at the intersection of North State Highway 95 and Chandler Road.

Mark Becker, 63, and Nancy Becker, 66, were on the motorcycle. First responders tried to save their lives, but they were pronounced dead at the scene by Williamson County EMS.

Officers determined Weise was driving his car while intoxicated, causing the two deaths.

Taylor PD was helped by the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office with the investigation. This is the city of Taylor’s fourth fatal crash in 2021.
