Slyder’s motorcycle crashed in the 300 block of Paluxy Street at approximately 1 a.m. Monday. He was flown via LifeStar medical helicopter to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth where he died at 3:57 a.m.
According to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Web site, the motorcycle rolled over and ejected him.
