WOODBRIDGE, Va. — A 26-year-old man is dead after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a parked car and a home in Woodbridge Saturday, police said.

The crash happened around 5:12 p.m. in the 4500 block of Dale Boulevard, according to Prince William County Police Public Information Officer Jonathan Perok. 

A preliminary investigation by police found that the motorcycle driver, identified as Lopez Castro of Woodbridge, was stopped at a red light in the left westbound lane on Dale Boulevard at the intersection of Hillendale Drive. When the light changed to green, investigators believe Castro accelerated and lost control of his 2001 Honda CBR 600F4i. 

The motorcycle left the road and crashed into an unoccupied car in the driveway of a home in the 4500 block of Dale Boulevard, before striking the home. 

No one inside the home was hurt, Perok said. Castro was pronounced dead by rescue personnel on the scene. 

Perok said the investigation is ongoing.
