Giles County wreck claims one

A West Virginia man was killed Friday on Route 460 in Giles County after his motorcycle collided head-on with a car traveling the wrong direction on the highway.
Marcus Paul Kiser, 37, of Lashmeat, W.Va. died at the scene of the 11:15 a.m. crash, two-tenths of a mile west of Route 61 in the Town of Narrows, said First Sgt. Mike Honaker with Virginia State Police.
Kiser was westbound on a Suzuki motorcycle when he collided with a 1996 Dodge Stratus operated by Marry Ann Toliver, 61, of Gap Mills, W.Va. Honaker said Toliver was traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of Route 460.
“We believe that Toliver must have mistakenly began traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes … when she turned from Route 219 in Rich Creek,” the trooper said.
He pointed out that Route 460 is a four lane divided highway and that in much of the area between Rich Creek and Narrows the parallel section of the highway is not visible due to the width and mountainous terrain in the median.
“We are not sure if Toliver was familiar with this highway … but unfortunately she undoubtedly did not realize that she was not on a two lane highway,” said Honaker.
A third vehicle involved in the wreck sustained minor damage when the motorcycle struck it after the head-on collision. Honaker said Kiser was passing the 1998 Ford E 350 “box truck” being driven by James Michael Lineberry of Radford at the time of the collision between the motorcycle and car.
Kiser was pronounced dead at the scene. Toliver sustained minor injuries and was transported to Giles Memorial Hospital. Lineberry was no injured.
Trooper Steve Barton of the Dublin State Police office is continuing the investigation with the assistance of the Virginia State Police Crash Reconstruction Team.
Charges are pending, according to Honaker.
