69-year-old Gregory Velasco from Oxford died Tuesday afternoon after striking the side of a GMC Terrain. He was thrown from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene. Velasco was wearing a helmet and no criminal charges have yet been filed.
The woman driving the GMC Terrain did not sustain any injuries.
The sheriff’s office will continue to investigate the crash with the help of an accident reconstructionalist, who will try to determine how fast Velasco was driving. Officials are also waiting for toxicology reports for both drivers.
Velasco was driving a 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle on Lippincott Boulevard when the accident occurred.
