KINGSPORT — Police have identified a Gate City man as the victim of a fatal Sunday afternoon motorcycle crash in Kingsport.

Manuel Mark Owens, 64, was killed when a car lost control and slid into his Harley-Davidson's path on New Beason Well Road. No charges have been filed at this time, with police saying the results of their investigation will likely be presented to a grand jury.

The wreck occurred at approximately 4:35 p.m., just after Owens passed the Pridemore Street intersection heading north. A southbound 1995 Mitsubishi Galant reportedly lost control in a curve and slid into Owens' lane of travel.
