Earlier this month in nearby Fairfax County, Virginia, a 25-year-old man was killed when he was involved in a two-motorcycle accident. According to one local news source, the accident occurred in the afternoon hours on southbound Route 123, near the intersection with Clifton Road.
Evidently, two motorcycles were approaching the intersection at a high rate of speed, one in each of the road’s two southbound lanes. As they both approached the intersection, a northbound truck was attempting to make a left-hand turn in front of the bikers. The motorcycle in the right lane was able to swerve around the front of the truck and avoid a collision. This motorcyclist continued on and has not been identified.
The other motorcyclist in the left lane was not so lucky. As he attempted to pass the truck, he struck the rear end of the vehicle and was thrown from his bike. He suffered life-threatening injures at the time of the accident and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
