Motorcycle crash on I-95 ramp kills 1

A man was killed yesterday afternoon when he lost control of his motorcycle on the ramp from southbound Interstate 895 to southbound Interstate 95 in Howard County, Maryland Transportation Authority Police said.

Police had not released the man's identity last night, saying his family had yet to be notified. He had been riding a Suzuki sport bike, said Cpl. Jonathan Green of the MdTA police. The agency is seeking witnesses to the accident, which apparently involved no other vehicles and occurred about 3:30 p.m. Any witnesses are asked to call 443-324-8994 to help in the investigation.
