Motorcyclist injured in Kill Devil Hills collision

By on September 6, 2023

(Kill Devil Hills Police)

On Tuesday, Sept. 5, Kill Devil Hills police responded to a collision involving a motorcycle and a passenger vehicle at the US 158 and Colington Road intersection. At approximately 8:32 p.m. a 17-year-old female driver from Kill Devil Hills, NC, operating a Nissan passenger car was in the northbound turn lane of US 158, preparing to turn left on Colington Road (toward Colington Harbor). The driver failed to see an approaching motorcycle and turned in front of a Yamaha motorcycle. The motorcycle driver, a 20-year-old male from Manteo, NC, struck the front of the Nissan and was ejected from the motorcycle.

The collision, rescue response and subsequent investigation resulted in a shut-down of parts of the intersection for over an hour. The operator of the motorcycle was transported to Outer Banks Hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Nissan was cited for failing to yield the right of way.

    Maybe they will get together, after having met by accident. Hope all are well!

    Assuming the motorcyclist had his headlight on at 8:32 PM there should be no excuse for the car driver not to see him. Wishing the cyclist a full recovery.

    I’m a motorcycle rider. This is one of the “classic” motorcycle accidents, oncoming traffic turning left (their left) in front of you. The other is cars pulling out from side streets/parking lots in front of riders.

    Motorcycles are supposed to have their headlights on but that’s not good enough, “Cages” are distracted and still don’t see us. Experienced riders always ride like we’re invisible.

    Riders! Approach these very busy intersections with extreme caution! These drivers WILL pullout in front of you and you have to be ready for that! Rant over.

    KHer. Exactly right. Invisible is the key word. That is what I told new riders when I sold motorcycles years ago. You must assume that others cannot see you and anticipate what they might do.

    Kh’er has it right. I sold my bikes a few years ago after getting cut off, pulled in front of etc. Now with cellphones, and touch screen cars these distractions were the last straw.

    I was a member of a large 1%er MC and the amount of deaths I’ve seen from failing to yield is incredible and watching people text and drive is out of hand.. I left my Club and sold my bike not worth it these days.. everyone in a big hurry to get nowhere and kill people because of it.. got a full size pickup now 😂
