As this blog discussed yesterday, a crash on Florida Avenue between a tractor trailer and what was then described as a motorcycle, took the life of the cyclist.

Metropolitan Police today revealed that the victim was Royal Garner of Hyattsville, Maryaldn and that he was riding a dirt bike at the time of the crash.

Reportedly Mr. Garner and a colleague were riding dirt bikes on Florida Avenue in the District of Columbia when a tractor trailer made a wide turn onto Eckington Place thereby causing Mr. Garner to lose control of his bike and/or causing him to strike a rear tore of the commercial truck. 

D.C. police continue to investigate the precise cause of the deadly crash.
