bikeaccidentOn June 28, 2014, at approximately 1410 hours, the Anne Arundel County Police Traffic Safety Section responded to a motor vehicle crash involving 2 bicyclists on MD Route 450 near Brice Lane, Annapolis.

The investigation determined that a 2011 Nissan operated by, Robin Vera Colbert, 54,  of Annapolis, was traveling south on MD Route 450 south of Brice Way.  The driver failed to drive in a single lane, crossed over the right edge line and entered onto the right shoulder. The shoulder is designated and marked as the Baltimore & Annapolis Trail. The Nissan traveled an unknown distance on the Trail before striking the bicyclists. The bicyclists were properly utilizing the Trail portion of the road.

The male bicyclist, identified as Todd Green, 27,  of Severna Park, sustained serious injuries.  The female bicyclist, Katie Pohler, 23,  of Glen Burnie, sustained life threatening injuries.  Both bicyclists were transported by Medevac to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma.  The driver of the Nissan was not injured.

The cause of the collision appears to be the driver error. Alcohol is also a contributing factor in this crash. The States Attorney’s Office was consulted on the scene and charges are pending at this time.
