11:50 a.m. UPDATE: Bruce E. Marshall, 49, of Hampton, was killed in the crash.
HAMPTON - A motorcyclist was killed in an early-morning crash in Hampton.
Police say it happened around 6:13 a.m. Friday in the 5000 block of West Mercury Blvd. near Wickham Avenue.
Sgt. Jason Price says the driver died on the way to the hospital.
Early indications are the driver of the 2003 Honda was going west and he lost control, but police don't know what happened to make him crash.
Just one lane was open on Mercury Blvd., so drivers headed to Newport News ran into backups during the morning rush. The road reopened completely at 12:30 p.m.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
