Chesapeake Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyer : Boy, 17 is Killed in Motorcycle Crash
It’s always sad to report on a fatal motorcycle crash. It’s even more tragic when the dead motorcyclist is only 17.
The 17-year-old from Appomattox County, Virginia was killed in a motorcycle crash in Nelson County on the afternoon of October, 13, 2012 .
Virginia State Police said the motorcyclist was killed on Route 151 in the Devil’s Backbone area. State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said the teenager lost control of his Honda Rebel 250cc as he approached a sharp curve and he was thrown from his motorcycle. 4
Speed was a factor in this fatal crash, according to police. As experienced Chesapeake motorcycle accident injury lawyers, we see many crashes in which excess speed causes motorcyclists to lose control of their machines.
A day before the death of the motorcyclist, a 20-year-old pedestrian from Locust Grove died after being struck by a vehicle on Interstate 95 in Spotsylvania County, reported the Daily Progress.
He was trying to cross the highway near mile marker 128 about two miles south of the Massaponax exit when a Dodge car hit him, according to Virginia State Police Culpeper Division.
