Investigators with the Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit want to speak with anyone who witnessed or has information regarding a fatal motorcycle collision in Clinton on Friday. The victim is 27-year-old Jamal Shaw of Erie Street in Southeast DC.
On April 6th, at approximately 3:25 pm, patrol officers were called to the 9100 block of Piscataway Road for the report of a collision.
The preliminary investigation reveals Shaw was on a motorcycle traveling westbound on Piscataway Road. A vehicle, also going westbound, changed lanes in front of Shaw forcing him to take evasive action resulting in his motorcycle sliding on its side. A car heading eastbound then struck Shaw. Shaw was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the striking car was not hurt and remained on the scene. Investigators are actively working to identify the driver who changed lanes in front of the victim. That driver did not remain on scene.
