According to State Police, Peter E. Rezuke of Jefferson, Massachusetts, was part of a line of motorcycles leaving MountainFest along Chaplin Hill Road. Slippery roads after a rain storm caused the driver to lose control of his bike and drive into oncoming traffic where the motorcycle collided with a Dodge Neon. Police say Rezuke was killed instantly.
The driver of the Dodge Neon, James D. Miller, of Salem in Harrison County, was transported to Ruby Memorial Hospital with minor injuries, according to police. A passenger in the car did not sustain any injuries, and no charges are expected to be filed.
Rain was the probable cause of twelve other crashes that day, so EMS crews stayed busy.
An estimated 60,000 motorcycle riders are attending this year’s MountainFest event sponsored by Triple S Harley Davidson of Morgantown, WV.
