PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. — A woman is dead and a man has been arrested for DUI, after a double motorcycle crash in Woodbridge that took place shortly before 2 a.m. on Saturday.

Two motorcycles were traveling southbound when the driver out in front (53-year-old Robert Potts) braked so he could turn onto Meadowbrook Dr.

Behind him, Nellie Sacra, 53, couldn’t stop her motorcycle in time and crashed into him. She sustained a head trauma and died at the hospital from her injuries.

Potts has been charged with driving under the influence. Police say that he knew the victim.

Additional charges are pending. Investigators believe both speed and alcohol were factors in the accident.
