HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Henrico Police have identified a man killed while driving a motorcycle in the county on Thursday night.

Anwar S. Edwards, 34, was killed when he riding his Harley-Davidson on Charles City Road near Poplar Spring Road around 5:36 p.m., police said. Edwards was headed east toward the intersection at the same time as a car was approaching southbound. The car stopped at the intersection, then pulled onto Charles City Road and into the path of the motorcycle, police said.
