Frederick County Fatal M/C Accident - 10/21 - October 22, 2009, 08:15 AM

My brother sent me this article last night. Neither my brother or I know the rider.

RIP Duane.


Around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Maryland State Police in Frederick responded to a fatal motorcycle accident near the intersection of MD Route 85 and Greenfield Road.

When authorities arrived at the scene they found motorcyclist Duane P. Brant, of Poolesville, suffering from serious injuries.

Brant was flown to Shock Trauma in Balimore but died from his injuries.

Authorities say that Brant was riding a 2006 KTM motorcycle northbound on Route 85 when the vehicle ahead him slowed down to make a left turn onto Greenfield Road.

Brant attempted to stop but rear-ended the vehicle in front of him.

The driver of that vehicle, Matthew Kanach of Frederick, was not injured.

Route 85 was closed for approximately two hours while authorities investigated the accident.

All lanes have since re-opened.

My first thoughts exactly. Then I thought about it.
Every time we lose a rider someone always analyzes the
accident, myself included, and looks for how it was the rider's fault.
I think we do this, because it makes us feel better/safer to think that
we can avoid such accidents... maybe... maybe not.
Point I'm making is... many time our first reaction, out of fear, is to point
a finger and say "it will never happen to me."
Avoidable or not... a fellow rider lost life... sad... lets simple wish him
well where ever he is going and not spend too much time pointing out
his mistakes made... if any.

I prefer to learn about an accident and hopefully walk away with something that will prevent me from getting in the same situation. Sometimes it's rider error, sometimes not. If it is rider error we need to acknowledge it and learn from it, so we can all be better riders.

Just saying, 2 me I think it could have just been a crazy azz dude in a car. I find it hard to believe he just ran into the back of the car. Maybe he did not signal maybe he waited until the last minute to see the bikes reaction and it turned out bad. Again just saying. R.I.P to the rider on the KTM. Mr. Duane Brant.
