Motorcyclist Killed Saturday Morning in Lothian Crash
Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Lt. John McAndrew said that Tyler Ralph Davis, 19, of Dunkirk, was killed after his 2003 Kawasaki motorcycle crashed around 7 a.m. Saturday at the intersection of Route 4 and Lower Pindell Road. There were no other vehicles involved and no other injuries. Anne Arundel County Fire and Police were first on the scene.
In the media release, McAndrew said Davis was traveling southbound on Route 4 near the Lower Pindell Road intersection. Early investigations by police revealed that, for whatever reason, Davis’ bike left the roadway and slid into the grassy median where the bike fell on its side.
Next, the bike with driver traveled nearly 250 feet before coming to a final rest. Davis’ body was found near his bike. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Anne Arundel County Fire Department paramedics.
Police said that operator error and possibly excessive speed may have contributed to the crash. McAndrew said that the investigation is ongoing.
From Tyler Davis’ public Facebook page, it appears the young man recently returned from vacation with his girlfriend and family.
