One man is dead after a crash that closed all lanes of Hills and Dale Road near Deer Trace Avenue Saturday night. Chauncy L. Townes, 29, was driving a motorcycle heading east on Hills and Dales when, according to the Highway Patrol, Rebekah R. Owen, 26, made a left turn from westbound Hills and Dales into Canterbury Commons Apartments and did not yield to Townes.
Townes’ white 2007 Suzuki motorcycle overturned and hit the left side of Owen’s 2013 Chevrolet Cruze, ejecting Townes from the motorcycle.
Townes, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported to Mercy Hospital where he died from injuries sustained in the crash, the Patrol said.
Police said alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash and it remains under investigation.
