Man, 27, dies after motorcycle crash

By Washington Post Editors

A 27-year-old Woodbridge man died Tuesday as a result of injuries sustained during a motorcycle accident, Prince William County Police said Wednesday.

At around 7:52 p.m. on Saturday, police responded to the intersection of Cardinal Drive and Mendoza Lane in Woodbridge in response to a report of a crash.

Their investigation found that the driver of a 2006 Suzuki motorcycle struck a curb, entered a median and ran into small trees, according to a police press release.

The driver, Mhomad Harres Husseini, was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said. He died Tuesday.

Police continue to investigate the crash. Speed was a factor in the accident, they said.

God bless the family of the deceased. From reading washington post blogs, I realize that there are some really lonely people out here...so sad.

These dopes think they're actually playing a video game when they're out there riding like flaming morons. They think that if they crash, they'll just reset the game. Sorry folks, gravity is very, very real..

"Speeding, zipping in and out of lanes to pass autos and trucks on the right or left, riding the dividing lines on two- and three-lane highways, and of course it's de rigueur to drive under the influence of alcohol or other drugs."

Seriously, you're a complete idiot. How many motorcyclists do you hear of getting arrested for speeding, weaving, making unsafe lane changes, reckless-driving and DUI compared to car & truck drivers?

He crashed on a straight section of road. Probably got forced off the road by some driver texting or chatting on their cellphone.

Tokenwhitemale: It's OK, people like "Mr. Neheum" (if that is his real name - he seems to use lots of aliases on other boards) is simply following his usual pattern of spouting inflammatory gibberish.

If you just ignore him, he'll go away. The good part of the Internet is that it gives the ordinary citizen a platform to espouse his or her views. The bad part of the Internet is that it can't discern the difference between crackpots and normal people.

FrankMonzon: So let me get this straight you would rather crash without a helmet then crash with one?

People need to stop blaming all motorcyclists for crashes most riders in this area are respectful of the other drivers who talk, text, eat, apply makeup, read newspapers while driving. Some of the maneuvers you see are the same ones that would save a life. Unfortunately it’s not a track so there are dangers.

Condolences to the family of the decease.

Bottom line is no one knows what caused the crash. AT my job we take more complaints on motorcycle failures than on vehicles. Unfortunately the man is dead. Have some respect and my condolences to his family.
