A fatal wreck on the Blue Ridge Parkway shut down one lane for about an hour on Sunday afternoon, Blue Ridge Parkway Rangers said.

The wreck happened at about 3:30 p.m. along the Parkway near Ox Creek Road and Town Mountain Road, at the Tanbark Ridge Overlook.

Rangers say the driver of a blue Subaru turned in front of the motorcycle, hitting it and causing it to strike another motorcycle.

The rider on the first motorcycle died at the scene.

The driver and passenger in the Subaru weren’t injured, and the two people on the second motorcycle were also unharmed.

No charges have been filed at this time.
