Motorcyclist Dies from Accident Injuries

An Edgewater motorcyclist has died from injuries he suffered Saturday in a crash when a car reportedly pulled out in front of him, according to the Anne Arundel County Police Department.
The crash happened about 2:16 p.m. on July 26 at the intersection of Davidsonville Road and Governor Bridge Road in the Davidsonville area.
Investigators say a 2007 Harley Davidson Sportster motorcycle was southbound on Davidsonville Road approaching Governor Bridge Road when a 2004 Toyota Avalon pulled from a flashing stop signal for the west side of Governors Bridge Road and into the path of the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was unable to stop and struck the driver’s side of the Toyota Avalon.
The motorcycle’s driver, Timothy Joseph Humphrey, was thrown onto the roadway and taken by Maryland State Police helicopter to University of Maryland Shock Trauma. He died Wednesday from his injuries.
Police say Humphrey, 30, of Edgewater, was not wearing a helmet that met state law.
The driver and passenger of the Toyota Avalon were taken to Anne Arundel Medical Center with minor injuries. The car’s driver was Peggy Armstead Minnis, 66, of Bowie, and her passenger was Frederick G, Minnis, 69, also of Bowie.
Police say it appears Peggy Minnis caused the collision by failing to yield right of way at the intersection. Neither speed nor alcohol appears to be contributing factors in this crash.
The States Attorney’s Office will be consulted prior to any charges, police say. The investigation continues.
