It was reported that on the day of the accident, Luiz was proceeding east on Hadfield Street at a fast rate and failed to stop at the intersection with Smyth Street. As a result, Moseley, who was riding a motorcycle along Smyth Street, collided with Luiz’s vehicle. Moseley was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
