Hampton police have been able to identify the woman that died in the motorcycle crash as Raven Barzda.
A tractor-trailer driver making a u-turn in the middle of the road drove into the path Raven Barzda just before the accident.
Firefighters and paramedics rushed to the scene of the motorcycle accident in order to treat the victim for her injuries.

LIABILITY IN TRUCK ACCIDENTS INVOLVING U-TURNS
Truck drivers have a responsibility to drive in a reasonably safe manner according to the prevailing conditions of the road. The law requires drivers making left hand turns and u-turns to yield to all traffic that are close enough to pose a hazard. Moreover, a truck driver should never make a u-turn in the middle of a narrow roadway. That is a recipe for disaster and may very well impose liability on the truck driver. If a truck driver causes an accident through their own negligence, the company that the truck driver works for may be vicariously liable.
