Robert Craig Elkins, 46, and his 17-year-old stepdaughter Jessica Ashley Dudley, of Triangle and Bealeton, respectively, died in a Sunday crash on Vint Hill Road in Fauquier County, when a van made a left turn in front of them, state police said Tuesday.
Royce Kim Rollins, 42, turned left onto Va. 652 at about 25 mph, in front of the 2000 Harley-Davidson, which was traveling at the 55 mph limit, said Sgt. Gary Settle, spokesman for state police division two.
The Harley hit the van’s front right quarter section near the fender; Elkins and Dudley were thrown from the Harley into the side of the van. They were both wearing helmets.
Charges are pending until the investigation is over, Settle said. State police reconstructed the accident scene and will seek advice from the Fauquier County Commonwealth’s Attorney before filing any charges, Settle said.
A family friend described Elkins Monday as a motorcycle lover and said Dudley was a rising basketball and track star at Liberty High School. Elkins worked as an electrical engineer in Arlington.
