A 35-year-old Bronson man is now behind bars as the result of a motorcycle accident in San Augustine County in January that claimed the life of a 29-year-old Lufkin woman.

Joshua Myers was arrested on Thursday and charged with third-degree felony intoxicated manslaughter charge. No bail amount was available.

According to a previous East Texas news story, the motorcycle crash occurred on FM 705 on Jan. 11.

The Texas Department of Public Safety accident report stated that Myers was driving a Yamaha motorcycle on FM 705 with Ashley McLemore as his passenger when they went off the road and crashed. Neither person was wearing a helmet, according to the report.

Both people were taken to a Lufkin hospital for treatment of their injuries. McLemore died in the emergency room.
