Crownsville Man Dies in Millersville Motorcycle Crash

A woman sustained life-threatening injuries in the Millersville accident—the second fatal motorcycle crash in Anne Arundel County during the weekend.

After a motorcycle crash in Millersville on Sunday night, police said a man died and a woman was seriously injured.

According to Anne Arundel County police, the crash occurred at about 9 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Veterans Highway and Benfield Boulevard.

Two people were reportedly on the motorcycle when it crashed. Police said Robert G. Wells, 55, of Crownsville was driving the motorcycle and he was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie, where he later died from his injuries.

The passenger, 41-year-old Kelly R. Sutton of Crownsville, was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore and is in critical condition, police said on Monday morning.

A preliminary investigation by police revealed that a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle crashed after striking a raised cement median on southbound Veterans Highway prior to Benfield Boulevard. Police said speed and alcohol use appear to be possible contributing factors in the crash.

This is the second fatal motorcycle crash that occurred in Anne Arundel County during the weekend.

Just so you know his family has taken this very seriously! He paid the ultimate price with his life. The final police report has not even been released to the family we don't even know 100% what was involved. So before making comments please consider the family that has lost a son, a father, a brother and how you may have just hurt them. When will people take their words seriously?
