The Winchester Police Department is asking for the public’s help to find a driver who may have been involved in what appears to be a drag race, which ended in a crash. On Wednesday, May 25th around 8:35 p.m., a 2005 Harley-Davidson motorcycle (traveling west) ran off the road and crashed into a utility pole on Berryville Avenue near the intersection of Chestnut Street. The male driver and a female passenger were both ejected into the roadway. They were taken to Winchester Medical Center with serious injuries. Charges are pending against the driver of the motorcycle.
Witnesses reported seeing a dark colored vehicle driving at a high rate of speed in the other lane. The vehicle is possibly a black BMW. It is possibly a late 1990’s or early 2000’s model BMW 3 series, or 5 series.
Individuals with information on a possible driver, or the whereabouts of the vehicle, are asked to call the Criminal Investigations Division at (540) 545-4707.
