According to police and reports, two motorcyclists were killed earlier this month in an accident involving a minivan.
According to Maryland State Police, the accident which occurred near the intersection of Route 301 and Short Cut Road, involved two motorcycles and a minivan. Reportedly, the motorcyclists were travelling at a fast speed in a group of six motorcycles. When a minivan pulled into their path, two of the bikers hit the van so hard that it allegedly flipped three times, resulting in the instantaneous death of the two riders.
This was the third serious motorcycle crash in the D.C. area within recent weeks, and was also the second motorcycle accident to result in a fatality. The other two accidents both occurred on Interstate 95.
The circumstances surrounding the crash remain unclear, for example why the minivan pulled into the group of motorcycles. Perhaps the driver was unaware of the exact location of the motorcycles.
