In a devastating incident, a compassionate driver who had halted to assist a motorcyclist involved in an accident lost their life when struck by an approaching vehicle, according to Asheville law enforcement.
Samantha Booth, an official from the Asheville Police Department, has identified the victim as Jason Matthew Perry, a 36-year-old individual who met a tragic end at the crash site shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday evening.
Booth has detailed that Perry encountered a collision scene featuring a fallen motorcyclist near the 1120 block of Sweeten Creek Road.
