An accident in Manassas, VA has left a Virginia State Trooper with serious injuries after a motorist pulled out in front of the officer’s motorbike, reports the Manassas Patch.
The incident occurred Friday morning at around 9:40 a.m. when Sr. Trooper R.D. Best was driving his 2009 Harley Davidson police motorcycle and collided with a Nissan Altima that had pulled out in front of him after failing to yield the right of way.
The driver of the Nissan, 86-year-old William B. Hash, of Melbourne, Fla., attempted to cross the northbound lanes of Route 234 and drove directly into the path of Best, who was unable to avoid the collision.
