1 killed in West End motorcycle crash


Ice may be the cause of a crash that killed the driver of a motorcycle near Vanderbilt early Friday morning.

Authorities said a 24-year-old man from Florida was driving west on Blakemore Avenue when he lost control of his bike.

Police said the motorcycle left the roadway and struck a curb. The victim was found by a passerby in the roadway.

A water main break nearby had poured water onto Blakemore, which froze on the roadway.

Blakemore is closed between Natchez Trace and Wellington.

The investigation is ongoing.
