Earlier this year near the Maryland-Pennsylvania border, a motorcyclist was killed when another vehicle crossed the center line on a highway and crashed into him. According to a recent report, police have apprehended the driver of the vehicle and charged him with homicide by vehicle, causing an accident involving death while not properly licensed, driving while operating privileges are suspended, driving without a valid license, reckless driving, careless driving causing death, and failure to drive on the right side of the road.
Evidently, the accident occurred on Barrett Pike near Garrett Road when the driver of a
mini-van that was heading south crossed over into northbound traffic. As the van entered the lanes of opposing traffic, the driver collide with the motorcyclist, fatally injuring him.
As it turns out, the driver of the van was from Mexico, and was not legally in the country. The judge denied the man bail and he currently awaits his trial date.
