Man dies in Va. motorcycle crash
A fatal motorcycle crash in Sterling is under investigation by the Loudoun sheriff's office, according to authorities.
Loudoun sheriff's deputies responded to the area of E. Church Road and Oak Tree Lane in Sterling around 10:30 a.m. Friday after a passerby reported seeing a 1993 Honda Shadow located along a treeline about 30 feet from the road, according to Kraig Troxell, Loudoun sheriff's spokesman.
The driver, identified as Charles J. Meyers, 56, of Minnesota, was found in a small ravine near the vehicle, according to the sheriff's office. He was dead when deputies arrived at the scene, Troxell said.
Police said it appeared that Meyers was traveling on E. Church Road when he left the roadway for unknown reasons after his motorcycle hopped the curb.
The single-vehicle crash remains under investigation by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Unit. Anyone with information is asked to contact Senior Deputy M. Cenate at 703-777-1021.
