One man is dead after a motorcycle wreck in Carroll County last night.
Wilbourn Sisk, 60, of Max Meadows, lost control of his 2000 Harley Davidson just after 6 p.m. as he was traveling along Route 100 in Sylvatus. The motorcycle then ran off the road and struck a tree near Deer Ridge Road, officials said.
According to the Virginia State Police, Sisk’s motrcycle was the only vehicle involved in the wreck. A female passenger, Mikki Delp, 25, of Independence, was also thrown from the motorcycle, and was treated at the scene for non-life threatening injuries.
The Virginia State Police, Hillsville Fire Department, and other rescue agencies responded to the crash. The cause of the wreck is still being investigated, although speed was ruled out as a contributing factor.
