Novice motorcyclist dies in fall from parking garage
A novice motorcyclist died when he plunged from the fifth floor of a parking garage near downtown after his motorcycle hit a low wall and he was thrown over it.

The death happened at 2929 Allen Parkway near Waugh about 5:50 p.m. Friday, according to the Houston Police Department.

Police said the 27-year-old man, whose name has not been released, died at the scene.

No other injuries were reported.

Police said the man was on the fifth floor of the parking structure learning to ride a motorcycle. His friend was walking alongside the man as he rode the motorcycle and teaching him how to operate it. At some point, the friend told the man to put on the brakes, but the man apparently accidentally hit the accelerator. The motorcycle slammed into a nearby wall and he was thrown over the wall and out of the parking garage.

Police are investigating the case.

Evolution in action. Should have taken out his idiot friend too. Always remember "you can't fall off the floor". sad he actually died of stupidity, had they not been 5 stories up he would have only injured his pride, and maybe a parked car.

Mistaking the gas for the brakes on a motorcycle is just down right ignorant. Learn the controls before you ever put your leg around one..

You can't fix stupidity. I hope his friend gets sued for being a dumbass.
