Comments Off

A Culpeper man died from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident on an Interstate 264 off-ramp Thursday morning in Virginia Beach (VA), The Virginian-Pilot reported.

Michael Allen Harris Jr., 26, took off-ramp from I-264 to Birdneck Road but lost control at the bottom of the ramp, a Virginia State Police spokeswoman told the newspaper.

The crash was reported at 3:39 a.m., authorities said. Harris was declared dead at the scene, and police did not reopen the interchange until 7 a.m. so the accident could be thoroughly investigated.

A Norfolk man also died in a motorcycle accident in Virginia Beach earlier this week, WVEC-TV reported. Marcus Raheem Williams, 26, crashed his motorcycle on I-264 while headed west near Witchduck Road. Williams, of the 600 block of Chesapeake Boulevard in Norfolk, died at the scene.

Two other men have died in motorcycle accidents in Virginia Beach in 2009, according to a Virginian-Pilot analysis of accident statistics.
