What Happened?

A motorcyclist was fatally injured in a crash on Friday, February 12, 2016. His motorcycle rear-ended a car on the connector of westbound Highway 50 and northbound Capital City Freeway. The accident happened about 5:00 p.m. Officials indicated that two motorcyclists had been weaving in and out of traffic at unsafe speeds. One of the motorcyclists rear ended a Kia Rio. The impact caused the motorcyclist to receive fatal injuries.

Were the Motorcycles Racing?

Investigators are trying to determine if the motorcycles were racing at the time of the crash. The other motorcyclist did not collide with any vehicles.

Were there Injuries to occupants in the Kia Rio?

No injuries were reported inside the Kia Rio vehicle that was rear ended by the motorcyclist. The connector had to be shut down while officials investigated the accident scene.
