Note: Look at the condition of this trailer.... missing light on the left.
Do you think if this trailer was required to have 8.33 feet of Reflector Tape type C-2
on the back maybe the driver would have seen it.
You can blame... Carry On trailers along with the National Organizations of These Trailers
that has chosen to spend allot of money to try to defeat our organization Reflector Tape law in Virginia which cost about $8.00. Is your life worth more than $8.00 of Reflector Tape?
Fatal motorcycle accident under investigation
NEWBURGH – Newburgh City Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that occurred at 10:35 p.m. Monday in which the 18-year-old male driver was killed.
Police said the operator, from New Windsor, was southbound on West Street when he struck a wooden trailer that was parked on the west side of the street.
The impact caused the bike to spin into the northbound lane, and is believed the driver, who police have not yet publicly identified, was thrown from the vehicle.
Police think that after the initial accident, the driver may have been struck by a northbound vehicle that fled the scene.
Police are trying to identify the owner of the wooden trailer that was either parked or abandoned there; the right side of the axle had been broken off.
Police are also looking for the owner and operator of a white full-size van, possibly a Ford that may have been involved in the incident, said Lt. Charles Broe. Police don’t know if the van was the cause or it if was involved after the motorcycle’s impact with the trailer.
Anyone with information is asked to call Lt. Patrick Arnold at Newburgh City Police Detective Division at 845-569-7509 or the main number at 845-561-3131. All calls will be kept confidential.
