The Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal crash in District Heights last Thursday. The victim is 21-year-old Marcus Hayes Jr. of Shady Glen Drive in District Heights.
On July 14th at about 2:45 pm, patrol officers were called to the intersection of Marlboro Pike at Boones Lane for a crash.
The preliminary investigation reveals Hayes was making a left turn from southbound Boones Lane onto eastbound Marlboro Pike. For reasons which remain under investigation, preliminarily it appears Hayes lost control. He was thrown from his motorcycle and struck an SUV. Hayes was taken to a hospital in critical condition, where he died hours later. The driver of the SUV was not hurt and remained on the scene.
