They say two cars were headed east on Pottershop Road at the same time — a Dodge Caravan in front and a Chevrolet Equinox behind it. As the two vehicles approached a hill, police say the Equinox driver began to pass the Caravan in a marked no-passing zone for eastbound traffic.
Investigators say that 47-year-old Samuel Weller of Liberty was killed on Pottershop Road in Wayne Co. yesterday afternoon because Rafael Lopez, who had no license, passed a van at the crest of a hill in a no-passing zone and hit Weller's motorcycle.https://t.co/PbMPn4lo09 pic.twitter.com/gmlBu4JOea— Jeff Lane (@jeff_lanenews) May 11, 2022
As it passed, the Equinox hit the motorcycle head-on, causing Weller to be thrown from the bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Wayne County coroner. Neither of the drivers were hurt, but police did learn the Equinox driver was operating the vehicle without a valid Indiana driver’s license.
The Wayne County prosecutor will determine if charges will be filed.
