MONTGOMERY VILLAGE, Md. (AP) -- Police in Montgomery County say a man has died after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed it into his home in Montgomery Village. Police say it happened Friday evening in the 20700 block of Highland Hall Drive.

Authorities believe 44-year-old Richard Mark Sampson lost control of the motorcycle after doing a "wheelie," struck a curb and then rammed it into the side of his house. Police say he crashed through the side window of the house and became pinned beneath the motorcycle.

Sampson died of his injuries at a hospital. No one else was injured.

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police – Collision Reconstruction Unit are investigating a fatal collision that occurred at approximately 5 p.m. on Aug. 30 in the 20700 block of Highland Hall Drive in Montgomery Village.

According to police, the preliminary investigation incidates that the operator of a 2002 Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle turned onto Highland Hall Drive, did a “wheelie” and lost control of the motorcycle. Police said the motorcycle then accelerated, struck the curb, travelled across a grass area, and struck the side of a house. Upon striking the house, police said, the motorcycle and its operator travelled through a side window and came to rest inside the residence.

A Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputy arrived on the scene within minutes and found the victim pinned underneath the motorcycle. The deputy provided emergency medical care until arrival of fire and rescue units.
Police have identified the operator of the motorcycle as Richard Mark Sampson, age 44, who was transported to a local area hospital where police said the Montgomery Village resident died from his injuries. According to police, Sampson was the owner of the residence that was struck. No one else was injured, police said.
This collision remains under investigation. Anyone with information regarding this collision is asked to contact the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 240.773.6620. Callers may remain anonymous.

Apparently he wasn't known for doing wheelies so it sounds like goofing around gone wrong. Sad.

I'd assume it was more of a power wheelie by mistake. Meaning he probably lost "control" of the bike before the front wheel even came up. He panicked and gripped even tighter sending him over the curb, through the grass, and through window. At the same time, we've all heard of cases of stroke or heart attack or seizure while behind the wheel. Many things could've happened. RIP

Note that no article that I've read so far indicated that the 'operator' of the motorcycle was a licensed rider or even the owner of the bike - only that the operator crashed into his own home.
