Chesterfield man killed on motorcycle

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Police identified the Chesterfield man killed in a Tuesday afternoon motorcycle accident as Steven Beasley, 31, of Traway Drive.

Beasley was killed at about 4:20 p.m. along the 9100 block of Hull Street Road, near Lynview Drive.

"[Beasley] was travelling eastbound on Hull Street Rd and lost control of his 2007 Kawasaki motorcycle, ultimately striking a guardrail," a Chesterfield Police spokesperson said. "Police continue their investigation into this crash."

WTVR reporter Jon Burkett noted skid marks could be seen on the road for about 100 to 150 feet.

"Witnesses report seeing this driver driving at a high rate of speed and popping wheelies," Burkett said.

Crime Insider sources said that at that point the driver lost control and was dismembered in the crash.

The driver was transported to VCU Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.

Police ask anyone with information about the crash to contact the traffic safety division at 804-748-1785.
