MARYLAND
Motorcyclist killed in collision with car

A 45-year-old man died Wednesday night, authorities said, after his motorcycle struck a car in Beltsville.

Maryland State Police identified the motorcyclist as Jermaine Jackson of New Carrollton.

The collision occurred about 6:30 p.m. on Route 1 at Prince George’s Avenue.

An initial investigation found that a 2017 Toyota Corolla traveling north on Route 1 was turning left on to Prince George’s Avenue when it entered the path of a 2006 Kawasaki motorcycle heading south on Route 1. The motorcycle hit the passenger side of the car. Jackson died at a hospital.

No charges have been filed against the car’s driver, who was not injured. The crash remains under investigation, but state police officials said in a statement that their initial investigation found “failure to give full attention and failure to yield the right of way were contributing factors in this collision.”
