Police Charge Hampton Couple over Death of Motorcyclist Taeisha Wilson in Newport News
Police have charged a woman and her husband over an alleged hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of another motorcyclist in Hampton Roads.
It has been a grim June for motorcyclists in Tidewater with a number of deaths over the last week. Drivers of cars have been responsible for most of these deaths.
Virginia State Police say they have charged a couple over a deadly accident last weekend in which 24-year-old Taeisha Wilson was thrown off of her motorcycle on the northbound lanes of I-664 south of Terminal Boulevard in Newport News near the Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel, reported the Daily Press.
My thoughts as a personal injury lawyer who works with clients in Newport News are with the family of this woman who died in this crash. If you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash you may have grounds to make a wrongful death claim against the insurance policy of the at-fault driver.
WAVY.com reported on how a 33-year-old woman and her husband from Hampton have been charged over this deadly crash.
State Police say the driver of an SUV left the scene of the crash. Investigators were able to find her and brought her back to the scene Sunday.
Three motorcyclists lost their lives in Hampton Roads in the space of a week and another was seriously injured. At the end of last week a motorcyclist was killed on Colley Avenue in Norfolk.
In many cases motorcyclists are hit and killed by cars making turns when drivers fail to see them. Here are some basic Virginia motorcycle safety tips.
