Victims Identified In Fayetteville Motorcycle Death, Injury

Amanda Moore of Fayetteville was killed Saturday (March 22) afternoon in a motorcycle wreck in Fayetteville, authorities said.

The 33-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The motorcycle driver, Michael Rogers, 46, also of Fayetteville, was taken to Washington Regional Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition, officials said on Sunday (March 23).

Rogers was driving the motorcycle north on Wilson Hollow Road at an “excessive speed,” when the motorcycle failed to negotiate a curve, then went airborne and struck a tree, officials said.

Police said neither victims were wearing a helmet.

Emergency crews responded around 4 p.m. to Wilson Hollow after bystanders came across the deadly wreck.

It is unknown how long the wreckage had been along the roadway before the bystanders came along and reported it. There were no other vehicles reported to have also been involved in the fatal crash, according to Central EMS.

Roger’s was transported to Washington Regional Medical Center before being air lifted to Mercy Emergency Trauma Center in Springfield, Missouri.

Moore’s body was sent to the Arkansas Crime Lab in Little Rock to determine the cause of death, officials said. The investigation is continuing.

    This road is so dangerous. I have seen many crashes over the years at this spot.

    That bridge was the place where people used to dump trash.

    Praying for the family.

    Their are so many deer on this road that if I had to guess, i’d say a deer ran into the bike and caused the crash.

    So devastating.

    Very sad for the families, I’m curious as to why there is any shock though. Not trying to sound disrespectful, but if you drive like a maniac on a curvy road on a motorcycle, it’s just a matter of time before you are added to the stat sheet.

    I went to school with her and this is like a gut punch. Her family is having a rough time with this along with all of her friends. They all need prayers right now along with the driver of the motorcycle.

    Terrible tradegy for all involve. Looks like what was a private matter has now become public considering the driver is married with children. Hope for peace and comfort for the families of both of them.

    Really…small town girl getting mixed up with someone that traveled at such an excessive speed that it took her life. But there are signs posted and a wooded area…more caution should have been given considering there was a passenger whose family is now devastated. Ridiculous and senseless.
