Fairfax motorcyclist killed in crash
A Fairfax County man was killed Tuesday morning when his motorcycle collided with a sport-utility vehicle that turned into his path in the Annandale area, Fairfax police said.
Police said Garrick C. Nelson, 23, was driving his 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle west on Little River Turnpike just before 9 a.m.
As he approached the intersection with Woodland Road, just inside the Capital Beltway, a 2011 Honda CR-V sport utility vehicle driven by a 64-year-old Annandale woman turned left at Woodland and Nelson crashed into it, police said.
Nelson, who lived in the 5900 block of Craig Street, was rushed to Inova Fairfax Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the SUV was also taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. She was not charged, and police do not believe speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
