Albemarle County Investigates September 10 Fatal Motorcycle Crash

The Albemarle County Police Department is investigating a fatal crash that occurred on Tuesday, September 10, 2013.  The crash happened at 3:30 p.m. at the intersection of East Rio Road and Pen Park Lane.

A motorcycle was traveling west on East Rio Road when it struck a GMC Yukon which was turning left onto Pen Park Lane.  The operator of the motorcycle, Randy Lee McKinstry Jr., died at the scene.  The driver and passengers in the Yukon were not injured.  McKinstry, 18 years old, was from Charlottesville (Albemarle County).
