Hanover, Va. – On Sunday, September 10, 2017, at approximately 11:38 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office responded to a two vehicle crash in the 13000 block of Mountain Road.
The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling west on Mountain Road, when the driver of the motorcycle began to brake which caused the motorcycle to skid. The driver was then ejected off the bike into oncoming traffic and struck by a 2015 Mazda sport utility vehicle traveling eastbound.
The driver of the 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle, James Edward Contreras, 51, of Glen Allen, was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash.
