motorcyclecrashOn March 8, 2014 at approximately 10:39 p.m., officers of the Western District were dispatched to the area of MD. Rt. 198 and Race Track Road for a report of a crash involving a motorcycle and a SUV.  Due to the severity of the injuries officers from the Traffic Safety Section responded to the scene and took over the investigation.

Preliminary investigation revealed that two motorcycles were traveling west on MD. Rt. 198 from Brock Bridge Road.  As the motorcycles approached the intersection with Race Track Road, an Isuzu Rodeo, being operated by Ira Matthews, was making a left turn onto Race Track Road.  One of the motorcycles struck the side of the Isuzu, ejecting the rider of the motorcycle, a juvenile white male.  The Isuzu continued through the intersection and came to rest on Race Track Road.  The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver of the Isuzu was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.  The other motorcycle fled the scene without stopping.

The motorcycle that was involved in the crash was reported stolen through Howard County Police.

Excessive speed appears to be factor in this crash.  The Traffic Safety Section will be completing the investigation.
