Reston Teen Dies From Injuries in Thursday Motorbike Accident

Fairfax County Police The Reston teen who was injured in a motorbike accident at Reston Parkway and Wiehle Avenue on Thursday has died from his injuries.

The driver of the motorbike, Sean Logan, a 10th grader at Herndon High School, was injured when attempting to make a left turn onto Wiehle Avenue about 3:51 p.m. on Thursday, police said.

“[He] was kind, good-natured, and an excellent student,” Herndon High School Principal William Bates said of the teen in an email to HHS families. “He will be greatly missed.”

In Thursday’s accident, two SUVs — an Acura MDX and a Lexus GX470 — were headed southbound on Reston Parkway and had the right of way, said Fairfax County Police public information officer Bud Walker.

The teen made the left turn, but then was struck by the Acura, which was in the left lane. The Acura then struck the Lexus.

Neither driver was ticketed and neither speed nor alcohol was a factor, said Walker.

Witnesses said the teen’s bike — which police describe as a “pit bike” or minibike — was on fire and he flew about eight feet in the air after the collision. They also said bystanders administered CPR until rescue crews arrived.

Principal Bates said school counselors and members of the FCPS Crisis Response Team will be available to meet with any students and staff who need support in dealing with the news of the teen’s death.
