There was a serious motorcycle accident Friday evening (4/11). Route 208 was closed and a lifeline helicopter was brought in to transport the motorcycle driver. Does anyone have any news about the circumstances?

I was wondering the same thing. We were on our way to Lake Anna and tried to take 208 but it was closed around 6pm Friday. The road was still closed around 11pm when a friend tried to take 208. I spoke to a lady working at Dickenson Store around 6, and she was told that there was a head on collision between a motorcycle and a car, but no word on if anyone was killed.

The driver of the truck cut a corner and hit the M/C on the side. A friend, who knows the M/C driver, says the motorcyclist lost a leg in the incident.

If the truck hit the m/c driver, then the trucker should be tested. Not only for drugs, but eyeglasses.

It is unfortunate to learn of such a serious accident. I offer my sincerest thoughts & prayers to you and your family. I frequent both of these routes on a regular basis & depending on the exact location of the accident, some of the turns on 208 can be quite dangerous. It is devasting to learn that the M/C Rider lost a limb in this obvious horrific accident, life will never be the same, and you will be faced with many challenges related to this. I hope that you find the support and strength to endure the recovery that is ahead of you.
We just don't never know what we will encounter on these roads, that can be so treacherous. Please everyone when you are driving our rural roads of Spotsylvania, be thoughtful that others lives are in your hands. A vehicle of any type is a deadly weapon, if not used with caution.

Hope your recovery is uneventful, and you adapt quickly.

Thoughts & Prayers to All Involved
