Motorcyclist Robert Francis Miner Died in Collision With Truck in Newport News

By John Cooper, Newport News Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

A motorcyclist who was killed in a collision with a tractor trailer in Newport News has been identified as Robert Francis Miner III of Bridgewater Drive in Newport News.

The motorcyclist died after an accident at Enterprise Drive and Warwick Blvd. on the morning of January 3, 2012. police say. My thoughts are with the family of the dead rider.

“An officer did locate the tractor trailer in the Oakland Industrial Park.  Crash Reconstruction Team members spoke to the driver of the truck and he was unaware that the motorcycle had struck his truck,” said Newport News police spokeswoman Holly McPherson.

Charges have not been brought at present. In some cases where motorcyclists are killed in collisions with trucks, the family of the deceased rider could have a case to bring a wrongful death lawsuit. See our report on this fatal motorcycle/tractor trailer accident in Newport News.
