ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — The owner of the Cheesesteak Factory and Jerk House has died in a motorcycle crash that occurred over the weekend, according to Roanoke Police.
This comes a day after the business posted a picture on Facebook announcing its new location in Salem:
The Roanoke County Police Department says the fatal crash took place at the intersection of Williamson Road and Commander Drive at approximately 7:45 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 8, after a motorcycle heading southbound on Williamson Road struck a vehicle pulling off Commander Drive.
According to the department, the motorcyclist — identified as 36-year-old Chauncey Ray Savage — was pronounced dead at the scene.
Even though Savage was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, police say the preliminary investigation indicates Savage’s speed contributed to the crash.
Savage used his business to support children and the unemployed in the area by providing free meals.
