Motorcyclist Killed In Head-On Crash With Car

Shenandoah National Park

National Park News

On Saturday, August 20th, rangers responded to a motor vehicle accident on Skyline Drive near milepost 42 involving a sedan and a motorcycle. The motorcycle rider, a 21-year-old man, was found unconscious and unresponsive in the roadway. Rangers provided care and transported him via park ambulance to a landing zone to rendezvous with a University of Virginia medevac helicopter. Despite ALS intervention, the man was pronounced dead shortly after the accident. The occupants of the sedan were uninjured. Evidence and witness statements suggest that the man was attempting to illegally pass a fellow rider at a high rate of speed when he collided head-on with the sedan. Ranger Coby Bishop was IC for the incident.
