DALLAS (AP) A 43-year-old man and his female passenger were killed in a motorcycle accident on a Dallas bridge.

Police said Sean Ashford was driving across the bridge right before midnight Friday when he failed to maneuver a curve in the road.

Police said the motorcycle slammed into the guard rail which sent the driver and his unidentified passenger vaulting over the railing and onto the grassy slope on the north side of R.L. Thornton Freeway.
