Police in Virginia Beach say that alcohol consumption and excessive speed have been ruled out as contributing factors to a Sept. 14 crash that claimed the life of a 58-year-old motorcyclist. However, a police representative has reported that the driver of an SUV involved in the collision has been cited for failing to yield. The truck and motorcycle accident took place on South Rosemont Road around 9 p.m.
According to an accident report, the motorcyclist suffered catastrophic injuries after being ejected from his vehicle near Silina Drive. The man had been traveling southbound when an SUV pulled into his path as its driver attempted to make a left turn. Prior to pulling into the path of the motorcycle, the SUV had been stationary in a left turn lane.
