A collision in Nacogdoches between a van and a motorcycle has ended a second life. The motorcycle passenger, Dwan Hikal, 31, died. The motorcycle driver, 46 year old Michael Goode, 46, died at the scene. Both were from Alabama. The woman driver of the van, 44 year old Michael Smallwood received minor injuries. She is from Aransas Pass.   The accident happened Monday afternoon on Highway 59, just south of the Nacogdoches city limits.

The investigating DPS trooper reports the van made a left turn in front of the motorcycle. Goode was thrown under the van and killed. The woman went through the van's window. She later died at the hospital. The DPS will be speaking with the district attorney to determine if evidence should be presented to the grand jury.
