Airline Boulevard Motorcycle Crash Kills Rider in Chesapeake

We are saddened to read about another fatal motorcycle crash in Hampton Roads. On Friday night an Airline Boulevard motorcycle crash killed a rider in Chesapeake.

The rider was involved in a collision with an SUV while making a turn. The driver of the SUV was later charged with a DUI.

The Airline Boulevard motorcycle crash occurred at the intersection with Holly Cove Drive in Chesapeake shortly before 11 p.m. on Friday.

Police said the SUV was heading west on Airline Boulevard. The driver attempted to turn into Holly Cove. The motorcycle struck the SUV as it turned in front of the rider.

Police said the rider, who was later identified as Scott Gregory, died at a local hospital. A passenger on the bike was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with injuries that may be life-threatening.

This was another tragic crash in which a motorcyclist appears to have lost his life through no fault of his own. Our thoughts are with the family of Mr. Gregory.

Airline Boulevard Motorcycle Crash – SUV Driver is Charged with DUI

A report on WAVY.com said the SUV driver was later charged with DUI. A passenger in the vehicle was hurt, but no information was available on the extent of the passenger’s injuries.

Larger vehicles making a turn is one of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Virginia. Even at the lower speeds associated with this maneuver, motorcyclists may sustain very serious injuries.

Recently, we noted in our personal injury blog how left turns are a significant cause of serious motorcycle wrecks. We are shocked and saddened about how drivers consistently fail to look out for motorcycles and the riders pay a terrible price.

Our Norfolk-based motorcycle wreck lawyers have written What You Need to Know About Motorcycle Accidents in Virginia. If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a motorcycling accident you may need to recover as much compensation as possible from the at-fault driver’s insurance company to cover serious and ongoing medical costs.
