The Tyler Police Department is asking for help identifying the owner of a pickup whose unsecured dirt bike fell from a truck bed and possibly caused a fatal motorcycle crash on Friday.

Investigators obtained surveillance video footage near the scene of the crash indicating a 2017 Taotao model DB10 off-road dirt bike motorcycle fell from the bed of a light colored truck.

Kenric Hoil, 43, died Saturday from injuries he suffered from hitting the bike with his motorcycle about 9:15 p.m. in the 300 block of SSW Loop 323.

Those who have information are asked to contact Det. Kevin Fite at 903-533-2025 or Crimestoppers at 903-597-2833.
