Frederick, Md. – At approximately 8 p.m., on Nov. 25, Frederick County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call for service of a single vehicle, 2002 Harley Davidson motorcycle, crash on the 4800 block of Winchester Boulevard.

John Ryan Coblentz, age 34, of Jefferson, Maryland, the motorcycle operator, sustained life-threatening
injuries when the motorcycle went off the road, down into a ditch, struck a steep embankment of a
drainage ditch, and came to rest in a gravel area off the right side of the roadway.

Frederick County Division of Fire & Rescue Services responded and began lifesaving techniques.
Emergency Medical Services personnel transported Coblentz to Frederick Health Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

It appears the motorcycle was traveling southbound on Winchester Boulevard, negotiating a left curve of the roadway when the motorcycle went off the road. Initial indications are speed and failing to stay on the roadway are factors in this crash. There was no evidence present indicating another vehicle being involved. FCSO Traffic Unit deputies will continue to investigate this crash.
