UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - Prince George's County police say a man was killed in a motorcycle crash that was partly caused by a collision with a buzzard.
Cpl. Clinton Copeland tells The Washington Post that the incident occurred about 3 p.m. Sunday on Brown Station Road, near Brooke Lane, in Upper Marlboro. Copeland says the man struck a "low flying buzzard" after passing a vehicle on the right shoulder.
He says the impact caused the man to lose control of his motorcycle, and run into a curb, fire hydrant and utility pole.
Copeland says the man, 31-year-old David Christopher Norris, was pronounced dead at a hospital. He says investigators believe that speeding, in addition to the collision with the buzzard, caused the crash.
