WASHINGTON — A 57-year-old motorcyclist died in a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in Prince William County Thursday, Virginia State Police said.
On Thursday morning, Jerre S. Thomas II — a 57-year-old Quantico, Virginia, resident — was riding a 2006 Yamaha XV1900CT motorcycle on northbound I-95 near mile marker 151 when a 2012 Honda Civic changed lanes and hit the motorcycle, police said. That caused the motorcycle to drive off the roadway.
Thomas attempted to regain control and re-enter the interstate, but the motorcycle fell on its side and Thomas was thrown off it.
Emergency crews transported Thomas to Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. He later died from his injuries.
The driver of the Honda was no injured, police said. Charges for the 47-year-old driver are pending.
Virginia State Police are investigating the crash.
