Tractor-Trailer and Motorcycle Crash Sends Motorcyclist to Hospital

The Virginian-Pilot recently reported that a motorcycle rider was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after he collided with a tractor-trailer in Newport News, Virginia. According to the report, when police arrived at the scene, they found the motorcyclist unconscious in the street. Investigators believe that the truck driver did not know that he struck the motorcyclist because the motorcycle collided with the rear of the tractor-trailer. Although the commercial driver did not stop at the scene, the driver and his truck have since been located. The crash is under investigation.
