VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – A motorcyclist has died after a crash at the intersection of Indian River Road and Kempsville Road that happened Wednesday night.

An EMS crew took the man driving the motorcycle to a local hospital for treatment of his life-threatening injuries, but he later died.

A Virginia Beach Police officer said the motorcyclist didn’t stop at a red light, so the officer attempted a traffic stop. The motorcyclist did not stop and ran another red light while going southbound on Indian River Road. The motorcyclist then ran into a sedan in the intersection around 7:05 p.m.

The operator of the sedan was not injured, police said.

Authorities identified the motorcyclist as 27-year-old Sherrod Londel Green of Virginia Beach.

Police say the crash has caused heavy traffic congestion near the intersection and advised drivers to avoid the area and use alternate routes.

The VBPD’s Fatal Crash Team is investigating the crash.
