Three people were killed over the weekend in traffic-related incidents in Maryland, including an unidentified Prince George's County man who was hit by a car while running from a menacing dog, State Police reported.

State Police said the fatalities brought to 213 the number of people killed on Maryland roads so far this year, compared with 247 at the same time last year.

About 9:25 p.m. Saturday, Amy Lea Quinn, 20, of Greensboro, was thrown from a pickup truck when the vehicle ran off the road near Burrisville at the Maryland-Delaware line and overturned, State Police in Caroline County said.

Police said Earl Ramsey 3rd, of Denton, was driving a 1990 Chevrolet pickup truck east on Wilhelm Road when it overturned and crashed into some trees.

Police said Ramsey and another passenger, whose name was not available, received minor injuries, but that Quinn was pinned under the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Shortly after noon Saturday, Robert Joseph Bailey, 31, of the 11600 block of South Laurel Drive in Laurel, was killed when the motorcycle he was operating crashed into a 1979 Oldsmobile after cresting a slight hill at the intersection of Allendale Drive and Landover Road in Landover, Prince George's County police said.

Police said Bailey, who was southbound on Allendale Drive at about twice the posted speed limit of 50 mph, applied his brakes as he crested the hill but was unable to stop and slid into the rear of the car.

The driver of the Oldsmobile, Alverta E. Thompson, 25, of the 7900 block of Allendale Road, was attempting to make a U-turn at the time of the collision, police said.

Police said Bailey was ejected from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said charges against Thompson were pending a full investigation of the collision.

Prince George's police today were trying to identify a man who was struck by two vehicles and killed Friday afternoon while attempting to elude a dog.

Police said the man ran into the southbound lane of the 1100 block of Larchmont Ave. about 4 p.m. Friday while being chased by a large German shepherd and was hit by a station wagon.

The impact threw the man into the northbound lane, where he was hit by a second vehicle, police said.

The victim was rushed to Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly, where he died a short time later, police said.

Police said the dog also was hit by one of the cars and was destroyed with the consent of its owner.

Police said the unidentified victim was a black male, 15 to 20 years old, about 6 feet tall and weighing 175 pounds. He was wearing blue sweat pants and a blue T-shirt with the slogan, "Never Dance With The Devil."

Anyone having information on the man should call police at 301-336-8800.
