A 21-year-old Fallston man speeding on a motorcycle Wednesday in Bel Air was the third motorcyclist to die in Harford County this year.
Harford County police said Daniel Michael DeVries was speeding when 2008 Suzuki motorcycle veered off the road and struck a tree.
Police said he was heading northbound on Reckord Road just north of Beechwood Lane shortly after 2:30 p.m. when he failed to make the curve and the motorcycle ran off the southbound edge of Reckord Road into a culvert, where it struck a tree and caught on fire.
DeVries was transported to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said DeVries did not have a valid Class M license required to operate the motorcycle.
