July 16, 2011|By The Baltimore Sun

A Philadelphia man was killed early Saturday when he was thrown from his motorcycle in Chase.

Cpl. John Wachter, of the county police, said Fred Sturgill, 57, of Philadelphia, was driving his motorcycle shortly after midnight on Graces Quarters Road near Ebenezer Road when his vehicle struck a guard rail. Sturgill was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene.

About an hour earlier, at 11:15 p.m., on North Charles Street in the Towson area, two cars collided near Gatehouse Drive, the entrance to the Sheppard Pratt Health System campus.

Wachter said the driver of one of the vehicles was nine months pregnant; she was not seriously injured in the accident. However, the baby was stillborn at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Neither a passenger in the pregnant woman's car nor the driver of the second car had serious injuries, the corporal said.
