State police have identified a Manassas man as the motorcyclist killed in a Monday night crash following a pursuit initiated by the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office.
A deputy spotted a motorcycle traveling northbound in the 10600 block of Marsh Road in a reckless manner and attempted to stop the driver, the Fauquier County Sheriff's Office said in a release.
The Suzuki GSXR continued traveling northbound onto U.S. 29 at a high rate of speed when additional deputies and Virginia State Police assisted, the release said. The motorcyclist attempted to turn into a crossover near Comfort Inn Drive, but was traveling too fast and lost control, state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said.
The motorcycle went through the median and into the southbound lanes of Route 29 where the motorcycle struck two vehicles. The motorcyclist, identified as 22-year-old Jose Manuel A. Delgado Alva, 22, of Manassas, died at the scene. He was wearing a helmet.
None of the drivers in the two vehicles that were struck were injured.
While state police investigate the crash, the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting an internal review of the incident.
