One Person Killed In Two-Vehicle Crash In Frederick County

Frederick, Md. (KM) – Maryland State Police continue their investigation into a fatal crash Friday afternoon.

Shortly after 12:15 PM, troopers responded to Fingerboard Road and Baker Valley Road for a two-vehicle collision. They say a Dodge Charger traveling west on Fingerboard Road veered into the eastbound lanes and crashed into a motorcycle. The operator of the bike was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity is not being released pending notification of next of kin.

The driver of the Dodge Charger remained at the scene.

Authorities say impaired driving and speeding were not factors in this crash, but rainy weather may have caused the driver of the Charger to lose control of the vehicle.

Fingerboard Road was closed for about three hours while troopers conducted their investigation.
