Virginia Beach, Va. – A serious motorcycle accident closed First Colonial Road at Oceana Wednesday morning.

The call came in at 5:53 a.m. Wednesday, November 6, 2013. The crash was reported in the 200 block of First Colonial Road.

Police say a male motorcyclist was traveling southbound on Oceana Boulevard near the “S” curve (near the NAS Oceana runway), when he veered to the right, striking the curve, and lost control.

The motorcycle skidded and came to rest in the street. The motorcyclist was ejected and struck a street sign.

The victim was transported to a local hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries, police say.

Northbound traffic is flowing freely. Southbound traffic is restricted at this time, but investigators anticipate both lanes will flow freely very soon.
