Bike Rider Killed In Car Wreck

An East Texas man is dead after he was hit by a car Thursday evening just north of Buna.

State troopers say Madeline Cunningham of Evadale was headed north on highway 96 when she crashed into 24-year-old Brian Keith Johnston of Buna.

Johnston was also headed north on 96 on a bike.  After the wreck he ended up in the southbound lane and was hit again by a pickup truck driven by Edith Williams of Kountze.

Johnston died a few hours later at a Beaumont hospital.  It's unclear if he was wearing a helmet.
