    Details:

    On July 2, 2012 at approximately 12:01 p.m. a county road crew that was mowing the right of way discovered the body of a deceased male. It appears that Adam Roark was operating a Yamaha motorcycle eastbound on Old Hopewell Road east of Henry George road when he drove off the roadway to the south and into the ditch. There is a curve in the roadway in the area of the crash and indications are that Roark failed to negotiate the curve. He was ejected and was found in the ditch, the motorcycle was found approximately 50 feet east of the body. The ditch is a five foot decline from the roadway and the victim and his motorcycle were not visible from the roadway. The Medical Examiner responded to the scene and determined that the victim had probably been in the ditch for more than 24 hours.
