A Pulaski man died Friday evening when he lost control of his motorcycle and then was struck by a vehicle.
According to Virginia State Police, Travis Layne Carty, 20, was operating a 2006 Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle on Thornspring Church Road when the wreck occurred around 7 p.m.
Police said Carty entered a curve “at a high rate of speed,” sending the motorcycle across the center line of the road. The motorcycle then “laid down” onto its side, ejecting Carty onto the road. At that point, a Jeep Grand Cherokee struck both the motorcycle and Carty.
Carty was transported to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead about an hour after the wreck.
Trooper W. L. Murphy investigated the incident. No charges were filed against the driver of the Jeep, whose identity was not released.
