Motorcyclist Mark Eckl dies after crash in Silver Spring

A motorcyclist died Wednesday after being injured in a serious crash in Montgomery County last week.

The incident on Aug. 14 began when Mark Charles Eckl, 57, of Baltimore slowed down for traffic on Columbia Pike in Silver Spring, police said. Ecki’s 2004 Suzuki Intruder motorcycle was hit from behind by a 2010 Toyota Prius. That caused the motorcycle to hit a 2009 Toyota Camry that had also slowed down in front of it.

The driver of the Prius that struck Ecki was identified as Niklaas Derk Hickman, 35, of Laurel, and the driver of the Camry was identified as Delicia Elvira Moore, 51, of Silver Spring. Neither was injured.

No one has been charged in the crash, and police said the circumstances remain under investigation.

Police initially misspelled Eckl’s name when releasing details of the crash.
