Harford County : Havre de Grace

Missing man's body found in the bay

The body of a missing Harford County man has been found in the Chesapeake Bay near Havre de Grace, authorities said yesterday.

Donald Walter McGlothlin, 53, of Havre de Grace had been missing since Feb. 28. His last known address was on a friend's boat at Tydings Park Marina, said Maj. John Van Gilder, a spokesman for the Havre de Grace Police Department.

Two fishermen discovered McGlothlin's body Sunday afternoon at Swan Creek Point, near the mouth of the Susquehanna River, police said.

The medical examiner determined that there was no sign of trauma and that the cause of death was drowning and hypothermia, Van Gilder said.

After McGlothlin was reported missing, a dive team conducted an underwater search March 2 but did not find anything, Van Gilder said.

Motorcyclist killed in collision with car

A Pasadena man died after a car struck his motorcycle on a busy Anne Arundel County road, authorities said yesterday.

Christopher Andrew Tucker, 33, of the 7900 block of Oak Road was heading north on Edwin Raynor Boulevard on his 2002 Harley-Davidson about 6:35 p.m. Friday when Carolyn Jean Snider, 59, of the 7800 block of Tall Pines Court in Glen Burnie was leaving the ramp from eastbound Route 100 in a 2005 Chevrolet Cavalier.

While turning left onto southbound Edwin Raynor, police said, she pulled into Tucker's path and struck the right side of his motorcycle, throwing him from it.

Tucker was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center with head injuries and was pronounced dead early Sunday.

Snyder was treated at Baltimore Washington Medical Center for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Police said neither alcohol nor speed appeared to have contributed to the crash.
