In a recent crash in Roanoke, Virginia, a motorcyclist was badly injured when he collided with an SUV. As is the case with many motorcycle accidents, the SUV allegedly pulled out in front of the motorcyclist, causing the accident. The crash shut down the roadway while police investigated.
The Roanoke police's spokesman reported that the accident took place at approximately 4:15 p.m. on Northside High School Road and Peters Creek Road. It's believed that the motorcyclist, who was driving south on Peters Creek Road, struck the vehicle as it pulled out in front of him. Weather did not appear to be a factor, as police did not describe anything out of the ordinary.
