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.
