A Mims husband and wife were killed in a motorcycle crash Saturday night in Oak Hill, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office reported.
Richard Parsons, 64, and Michelle Parsons, 52, died in the crash. They were riding a 2015 Harley-Davidson motorcycle south on U.S. 1 about 8:30 p.m. near Golden Bay Boulevard, roughly 1½ miles north of Maytown Road.
The Harley-Davidson swerved off the roadway onto the right shoulder and struck a pole, knocking both riders off the motorcycle and into the road, deputies said in a press release.
Moments after the crash, a southbound truck on U.S. 1 struck Michelle Parsons on the roadway, the press release said.
Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene, and the truck driver stopped and cooperated with the investigation.
The crash investigation remains ongoing.
