Serious accident Mon May 28, Ashburn - May 31, 2007, 11:55 PM

I heard today about an accident on Ryan Rd/ Loudoun County Pkwy in Ashburn. Single motorcycle accelerating, becoming unstable, and high siding into the shoulder. A friend of mine at work said his neighbor witnessed it. Apparently the rider's helmet came off in the crash and had at least one seriously broken leg. Scored a ride on a helicopter...

I didn't see any threads on this.. Can anyone confirm??

I haven't heard anything, but hope the riders will heal up quickly and be riding again soon.

So, the rider was accelerating and just became unstable and dropped? Was it on a corner or anything? Hope the rider is ok.

I searched for it on google but came up short. Maybe the rider somehow started a tankslapper after coming down hard from a small wheelie.

Here's one example:

(somewhat graphic crash footage: viewer discretion advised)

Another (w/o crash):

And then there's the ol' classic:

[Added in edit] Hope the rider comes out of it ok.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

From what I was told, he was going very straight.. probably raised the front wheel and came down unstable. I've since heard that he was about 20 years old and lived right in the neighborhood where he went down.. he survived the inital crash, but I haven't heard any follow up info.. I thought one of us out on the board might be an EMT and heard the call...
