Young Motorcyclist of Newport News, Virginia (VA) Dies in Big Rig Collision

What Happened

An accident involving a motorcyclist and a big rig resulted in the death of a local man from Newport News, Virginia (VA). A witness told police that the big rig was travelling from the northbound direction on Warwick Blvd and turned left onto Enterprise drive when the driver of the motorcycle came into contact with the rear end of the truck.


There is not enough information yet to determine if the big rig turned left in front of the motorcycle and cut him off or if he ran the red light. It may even be possible that the big rig had defective equipment and the motorcyclist was unable to see the big rig because his running
lights were out.
