UPDATE: Motorcyclist Killed in Head-On Morning Collision

The driver of a motorcycle was killed after he crashed head-on onto an SUV Saturday morning in Cockeysville.

UPDATED 11:33 a.m. Oct. 27: A man driving a motorcycle was killed Saturday morning after he struck an SUV head-on in Cockeysville.

The man, whose name will not be released until his family is notified, was declared dead at the scene, according to a Baltimore County Police press release.

The driver of the SUV, a Toyota 4Runner, was transported to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious injuries. The passengers in the SUV, an adult female and two juveniles, were taken to other area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Police were called to the scene at 7:57 a.m. The investigation found that the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Shawan Road just east of Beaver Dam Road, and the Toyota 4Runner was traveling westbound on Shawan Road towards Beaver Dam Road. The motorcycle lost control for an unknown reason, crossed the center line and struck the SUV head-on, police said.

The Baltimore County Police Department Crash Team is still investigating the incident.

It is strange that the mother, mother-in-law, grandmother is on here posting rather than getting to the hospital to be with her family. Wonder where the priorities are.

Jamie, Have you given your eye-witness account of the accident to the police? If not, they’re asking for witnesses to come forth. I’m very sorry that you had to see something so horrific. You and all involved are in my thoughts and prayers. My sister was killed on the JFX on her motorcycle when she lost control of her bike and slammed into & flipped over the jersey wall. The man that was riding beside her (& saw it happen) was severely traumatized and afraid to return to the scene of the accident to help her. He did go back, and I was thankful to have had the opportunity to connect with him and hear about what he witnessed in her last moments, as it gave me some sense of closure. I'm hoping the results of the investigation will bring much-needed answers (an end to all of the speculations) and some closure to the families involved.

FIFA, you seem to think that YOU have some kind of special right to post her because you have posted before. Well, I'd rather hear from people who were near the scene of the accident, knew the people involved, etc. than hear your blah, blah, blah...Go away.

Diane, so strange that you would make this comment. What's your point? I think that the mother/grandmother has plenty to say and I value her comment, yours...not so much. It would be unreasonable to think that she would spend every second of every day sitting in the hospital and never checking her phone or computer. Go back under your rock.

I believe the priority is to thank people for their thoughts and prayers for the family injured by a careless motorcycle driver. I agree with Diane's comments and her suggestion about you getting back under your rock.
