Police continue investigating the scene of a crash Thursday morning that killed a motorcycle driver in the early-morning hours of the day.
At about 5:25 a.m. on May 21, police, fire and EMS responded to a crash on Three Notch Road at its intersection with Hermanville Road, where an motorcycle driver had been trapped in between a pole and a truck.
The motorcycle’s operator, was declared dead on the scene by Lexington Park rescue personnel, according to Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Chief Ken Hicks and Bay District Volunteer Fire Department Chief Robert Wahrenbrock, who said they were not at the scene, and could only disclose that the incident was under investigation.
Preliminary investigation determined a 2016 Chevrolet Colorado operated by Aaron Jacob Windsor, 24, of Avenue was traveling north on Three Notch Road and made a left-hand turn at the intersection with Hermanville Road, according to a sheriff's office release sent Thursday night. Windsor’s vehicle collided with a 2017 Indian Motorcycle traveling southbound on Three Notch Road operated by Marc Allen Guetschoff, 61 of Lexington Park. Guetschoff was ejected from the motorcycle and pronounced deceased on the scene by emergency medical personnel, according to the release.
Units set up a helicopter landing zone near Home Grown Farm Market off Hermanville Road about 15 minutes after the initial call, but the helicopter was canceled shortly after, Hicks said.
Sheriff’s office collision reconstruction unit officers were dispatched to the scene Thursday morning to investigate the crash, a sheriff’s office spokesperson had said later that morning.
“That’s a very bad intersection, a lot of very bad accidents happen there,” Hicks said following the incident.
At this time, speed, alcohol, and drug use do not appear to be factors in the collision, according to the sheriff's office release. Anyone who witnessed the collision and has not yet provided a statement to law enforcement is asked to contact Cpl. Vincent Pontorno at 301-475-4200, ext. 72337, or by email at Vincent.Pontorno@stmarysmd.com.
The crash was the fourth fatal motor vehicle collision in St. Mary’s this year, and the first since March.
