Three Maryland Motorcycle Accidents in April End Fatally for Riders
Posted on May 20, 2013
At least three Maryland motorcycle accidents claimed the lives of three riders last month.
Most recently, Daniel E. Levinsky, a 29-year-old from Middletown, died in a Maryland motorcycle crash in the early-morning hours of Sunday, April 28.
Levinsky was traveling eastbound on Bethel Church Road toward the Delaware border around 2:20 a.m. on his 2011 Kawasaki Z1J motorcycle. When he failed to properly negotiate a curve, he lost control of the bike and crashed into a utility pole.
He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Police say Levinsky was wearing a helmet when the accident occurred.
Ryan Andrew Keller, a 26-year-old man from Columbia, was riding his 2012 red Kawasaki ZX-6 motorcycle in Montgomery County on Tuesday, April 9 when he lost control of his own bike.
Keller was traveling southbound on Route 29 around 1:15 p.m. when the accident occurred. As he crossed the bridge separating Montgomery and Howard counties, the motorcycle began to wobble, and Keller slid off the bike as it crashed to the ground.
He also was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Police did not release information on whether Keller was wearing a helmet.
Montgomery County police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the fatal crash. Anyone who has information regarding this Montgomery County accident is asked to call 240-773-6620.
Another man died in a Maryland motorcycle accident in Anne Arundel County days earlier. James Garrett Henderson, a 27-year-old from LaPlata, was traveling westbound on Route 100 around 5:45 a.m. on Saturday, April 6.
According to witnesses, the motorcycle appeared to be speeding when the rider switched lanes and crashed into the back of a box truck headed in the same direction. A state trooper who arrived on the scene attempted to resuscitate the victim, but Henderson later died at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
Our deepest condolences go out to the families of these men who lost their lives.
