(King George)- A Fredericksburg man died late Friday afternoon in a two vehicle crash in King George on Route 301 northbound–near Route 616.
State Police say a 2008 Kawasaki motorcycle was travelling north on Route 301 at a high rate of speed when it struck the rear of a 1986 Ford F-150 which was also travelling north. The operator of the motorcycle was thrown from the bike; the bike caught fire after impact.
45-year old Jeremy Via died at the scene. The male driver of the pickup was transported to Mary Washington Hospital with serious non-life threatening injuries. Speed is being considered a factor in the crash.
