A 20-year-old Riva man was fatally injured Thursday when his motorcycle crashed into a towed car that was crossing his path, county police said.

Joseph Michael Davis, of the 3100 block of Riva Road, received neck injuries and was pronounced dead at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center three hours after the accident.

Police said Davis was northbound on Riva Road near Speicher Drive on a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle shortly before 6 p.m. when a tow truck pulling a 1992 Chevrolet Lumina turned onto Speicher Drive and into Davis' path, police said.

The motorcycle struck the right rear quarter panel of the Lumina. Police do not believe drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash and charges in the accident are pending.

Electronic equipment taken in burglary

Burglars broke into a Glen Burnie apartment Thursday and used the kitchen trash can to cart off more than $1,200 worth of electronic equipment, county police said.

Andre Marie Joyce reported the burglary at her apartment in the 400 block of Woodlake Court about 7: 30 p.m. She told police she discovered her sliding glass door ajar when she returned after being away about 12 hours. She was missing a cellular phone, stereo equipment and video games, she said.

A groundskeeper at the apartment complex told police he saw two men sitting in a 1989 Ford Escort in front of the building just after noon, police said.
