On Sunday afternoon at approximately just before 2 p.m., a Virginia State Police Trooper observed a 2018 Suzuki GSXR 750 motorcycle, operated by, Brandon Paul Perdue, 26, of Chesterfield, Va., driving aggressively by swerving in and out of traffic and traveling at a high rate of speed, westbound around the 3000 block of Darbytown Road.
The trooper activated his emergency lights and siren to initiate a stop of the motorcycle. Perdue then accelerated rapidly causing him to lose control, running off road left, and striking a culvert pipe forcing Perdue to be ejected from the motorcycle at Darbytown Road and Doran Road.
Perdue was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased a short time later.
The crash remains under investigation with the assistance of the Virginia State Police Crash Reconstruction Team.
