August 06, 1999

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - A man was killed Thursday night when his motorcycle struck a car near the entrance to the Jefferson Crossing shopping center along Flowing Springs Road, West Virginia State Police said.

A car headed toward U.S. 340 attempted to turn into to the shopping center, crossing the path of the motorcyclist, said Sgt. David Forman.

The motorcyclist hit the car and went over top of the automobile, said Forman.

At least one person who was riding in the car was taken to Jefferson Memorial Hospital after the 9:29 p.m. crash, Forman said.

A large group of people gathered in the parking lot of the shopping center to watch rescue crews assess the scene. The car had heavy damage to its passenger side and the motorcycle was lying on its side near the entrance to the shopping center.
