Head-on crash--2 bikes in PG County - August 23, 2015, 12:41 PM

Two killed in motorcycle crash in Prince George’s County - The Washington Post

According to the preliminary report in the Post:

"The crash occurred about 4:40 a.m. at 11500 Laurel Bowie Road... two motorcycles were traveling in opposite directions on Route 197 in Laurel when, for unknown reasons, the northbound driver crossed the center line and struck the other motorcycle head-on, killing both drivers."

Very strange, especially so early in the morning.

Very very queer indeed.

Ok, just looked it up on the map. I'm somewhat familiar w/the section of road. It's about a 1/2 mile from the BW Parkway and Harley Dealer.

Long arching curve that comes out of the Patuxent Reserve section, so it's nearly pitch black and pretty desolate after 11pm.

My guess is someone was in the gas and carried the curve too wide thinking no one would be coming from the opposite direction at 4am.

Murphy's Law rides shotgun once again. RIP to both riders.

I wonder what the final speeds involved were?
