One man is dead after driving his motorcycle off the road and into a signpost in Howard County, according to police.
Forty-five-year-old Gary Alan Lynch of Woodbine was driving his Honda CRB 900 motorcycle westbound on Maryland Route 99 in Marriottsville Sunday evening near Alpha Ridge Park, according to a statement released by Cpl. Christopher Krieger.
According to Krieger, Lynch drove off the road at about 6:16 p.m. and struck a signpost. Lynch was taken to Howard County General Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival, according to Krieger.
The preliminary police investigation has determined “speed” and “failure to drive within a single lane” as the primary causes of the collision.
