Motorcycle crash victim a VRE worker
A 33-year-old Gaithersburg man who was fatally injured Sunday after he lost control of the motorcycle he was riding in upper Montgomery County was a conductor for Virginia Railway Express, according to rail officials.
Larry Daniel Talley worked for Keolis Rail Services, which operates the VRE service. He most often worked on Manassas Line trains 327, 330, 337 and 338, VRE officials said.
According to police, Talley was riding west on Mateny Road when the motorcycle went out of control at Great Seneca Highway.
Talley was thrown from the motorcycle and struck a parked vehicle, police said. He died at a hospital about an hour after the 3:30 p.m. incident.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with Larry's family and his colleagues during this difficult time," VRE said.
The public can send condolences to Talley's family via VRE: 1500 King St., Suite 202, Alexandria, VA 22314
