HURRICANE – The name of a man who died following a vehicle collision Friday was released by authorities Saturday morning.
Charles S. Vick, 64, of Hurricane, was identified as the man killed Friday afternoon following a collision between his 2007 Black Suzuki motorcycle and a 1997 Buick LaSabre on 870 West at the intersection of 325 North in Hurricane.
According to a statement from Hurricane City Police, Vick was southbound on 870 West when the LaSabre, driven by 51-year-old Robert J. Lounsbury, of Hurricane, was northbound on the same street. As they came to the intersection of 325 West, Lounsbury made a left turn and collided with Vick and his motorcycle around 3:15 p.m.
Vick was taken to Dixie Regional Medical Center in critical condition and pronounced dead.
Lounsbury was arrested and charged with automobile homicide, failure to yield and violating an alcohol-restricted driver’s license, police said.
“Our deepest condolences to the victim’s family,” police said in Saturday’s statement.
The crash happened by Hurricane Elementary, though school was out by the time the collision occurred so no one from the school was involved, Hurricane City Police Sgt. Brandon Buell said.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
