An unidentified bicyclist was killed last night when he was involved in a crash along Catherine Avenue in Pasadena.

On November 20, 2020, at approximately 9:45 p.m., officers from the Anne Arundel County Police Department responded to the area of Catherine Avenue and Fawn Ave in Pasadena Maryland for a vehicle versus bicycle collision.

The investigation revealed that a male bicyclist was riding north on Catherine Avenue in the middle of the northbound travel lane. At that same time, a 1989 Jeep was also travelling north on Catherine Avenue within its travel lane.

This area was dark, and the cyclist was wearing all black clothing which was non-reflective. The bicycle was dark blue with no head or tail illumination.

As the Jeep approached the bicycle from the rear, the driver observed the cyclist at the last minute and took evasive action to avoid striking the cyclist but the two ultimately collided. The bicyclist was thrown from the bicycle and came to rest in the northbound roadway. The bicycle itself was thrown into the southbound travel lane where it was struck by a southbound Toyota. The driver of the Jeep immediately stopped and called 911 as did the driver of the Toyota. The male bicyclist was later pronounced deceased at Baltimore Washington Medical Center by emergency room staff.

Preliminarily, the primary cause of this crash is the bicyclist illegally being in the roadway. Secondary factors include poor lighting and dark clothing. It is believed that alcohol use may be a contributing factor in this crash on the part of the bicyclist due to scene evidence. The body of the bicyclist has been transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy and toxicology tests.

At this time, the identity of the male cyclist is unknown as he had no identification on his person. Forensic methods (fingerprints) are being used to assist in his identification.
