Fairfax County police

A 37-year-old Rose Hill man was killed in a motorcycle crash Thursday evening in the Clifton area.

The wreck occurred about 7:55 p.m. on Fairfax County Parkway near Popes Head Road. Fairfax County police say a  2003 Nissan Maxima traveling northbound on the Fairfax County Parkway was attempting to turn left on a flashing yellow signal when the motorcycle hit the car.

The 2019 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling southbound on the Fairfax County Parkway and the driver proceeded through the intersection on a green signal and struck the Maxima, police said.

The motorcyclist, Joshua Baldwin, 37, of Rose Hill was thrown from the motorcycle and was pronounced dead on-scene. The driver of the Maxima, along with a passenger, remained on scene and were treated for minor injuries.

Detectives believe that speed may have been a factor for the motorcycle.
