FORT WORTH - A motorcycle accident is under investigation in Fort Worth after a couple was thrown from a freeway overpass.

The victims have been identified as 29-year-old Daniel Thornton and Whitney Cunningham.

Witnesses reported they saw the motorcycle drove off the overpass; Fort Worth police are still trying to determine if other vehicles were involved and what caused the driver to lose control.
