[ARCHIVED] Motorcyclist dies in crash on Military Highway

NORFOLK, Va. (NPD) – The Norfolk Police Traffic Fatality Team is investigating a fatal crash Wednesday night involving a motorcycle.

Shortly after 8:20 p.m., police were called to the 6600 block of N. Military Highway at the intersection of Longdale Drive for an accident involving a motorcycle and a Ford Expedition.  When police and paramedics arrived, they found a 58-year-old motorcyclist lying in the roadway unresponsive.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The preliminary investigation has revealed the Ford SUV was traveling northbound on Military Highway and attempted to make a left turn onto Longdale Drive.  The Ford pulled into the oncoming traffic lanes and was incidentally struck by a motorcyclist that was traveling southbound on Military Highway. The motorcyclist was ejected from his bike and died at the scene.  The driver of the Ford Expedition, a 33-year-old woman, was uninjured and remained at the scene.

At this time, alcohol and speed do not appear to be contributing factors in this crash.

Once the Norfolk Police Traffic Fatality Team completes their investigation, their findings will be turned over the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office for determination of charges.
