Police Identify Chevy Chase Bicyclist In Collision

Montgomery County Police on Friday identified a Chevy Chase bicyclist as the critically injured victim of a collision with a school bus on Wednesday.

Michael Wilhelm Breithaupt, 54, of the 3700 block of East West Highway remained in critical condition Friday after colliding with a Montgomery County school bus at about 2:30 p.m. in the intersection of Darnestown Road and Berryville Road in Darnestown.

Police said they were still investigating why both Breithaupt and the school bus entered the intersection at the same time. Breithaupt was traveling northbound on Berryville Road and the school bus was traveling eastbound on Darnestown Road, police said.

As of this weekend, police were also looking for help in finding Breithaupt’s car, a black 1991 Jeep he parked before beginning his ride. Cycle Moco says his wife believes he may have ridden with a group named the Spartans.

Police are asking anyone with information to the Collision Reconstruction Unit at 240-773-6620.
