Arnold Maryland man, 29, dies in collision of motorcycle, 2 other vehicles
Witnesses say victim was traveling at high speed

An Arnold man was killed Saturday afternoon when his Suzuki motorcycle collided with two other vehicles on Ritchie Highway, Anne Arundel County police said.
Shortly after 3 p.m., Curtis Leon Jones Jr., 29, was traveling north with several other motorcyclists on the highway near the intersection with Cypress Creek Road. Several witnesses told police they saw the motorcycles traveling at high speeds and swerving in and out of the two traffic lanes.

Police said Jones swerved across the median to avoid a car attempting to change lanes. After crossing the median, he headed into oncoming traffic and collided with a Honda Accord driven by Wayne Gruehn, also of Arnold. The collision tossed Jones over the Honda and into a Jeep Cherokee behind it. The driver of the Jeep ran over the victim before coming to a stop 300 feet from the area of impact.

Jones, a resident of the 800 block of Mago Vista Road, was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was injured.

County police said investigators are working to determine the cause of the crash.

Man, that is sad to hear. I just hate that one wrong judgment can cost someone their life. Whether he was being a dumbass or not, he still didn't deserve to die. I just hope other people learn from this.

EXACTLY! People need to use some common sense on their bikes before they start putting restrictions or laws in general banning sportbikes. Would suck to not be able to ride my bike anymore, because idiots are racing between cars on 2lane highways at 120mph.
Sux for him and his family that he had to learn the hardway. :( hopfully his budies he was riding with, will be a little smarter on the roads next time.

seems like everytime some1 dies on a motorcycle the witnesses come out of the woodwork that say all of them were driving recklessly. Lil stereotype?

it's funny, in Europe just about every motorcyclist on the road lanesplits and cuts through traffic. Here they are considered idiots, there they are considered average riders.
Sounds like in this case he was doing his best Ghostrider impersonation and we know he's got quite the bad name over there. Apples and oranges, IMO.

lack of common sense i suppose. i cant imagine what the driver of the jeep feels like, knowing he was partly responsible for killing someone because of their apparent stupidity. I feel sorry for the guys family.
