Two Killed In Head-On Collision

Shenandoah National Park

National Park News

On Sunday, October 9th, rangers responded to a motor vehicle accident on Skyline Drive involving a sedan and a motorcycle. Two motorcycle riders, a 59-year-old man and his 54-year-old wife, were found unresponsive in the roadway. Rangers and Warren County EMS provided care and transported both people via ambulance to a nearby landing zone to rendezvous with a medevac helicopter. Despite ALS intervention, the woman was pronounced dead shortly after the accident. The man was flown to Winchester Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead several hours later. The occupants of the sedan were uninjured. Evidence and witness statements suggest that the sedan was attempting to pull into an overlook when the motorcycle operator rounded a corner too fast, lost control, and slid head-on into the sedan.
