Md. motorcyclist killed in rear-end crash into Mercedes SUV

A Laurel man was killed Saturday afternoon when he crashed his motorcycle into the rear of a Mercedes SUV that had slowed to turn into a driveway in Damascus.

Police say Alan Evans, 51, of the 8600 block of Felsview Drive in Laurel died on the scene despite live-saying efforts of emergency personnel, including an off-duty Howard County firefighter who happened to come upon the collision just before Montgomery County Fire & Rescue personnel arrived.

Lauren Fishman of Rockville, who was driving the Merdedes, and a 14-year-old female passenger were uninjured.

It happened about 3:30 p.m. in the 6900 block of Annapolis Rock Road near Damascus where the SUV and the motorcycle were traveling eastbound, police say. As the SUV turned into the driveway, the motorcycle crashed into the back of the SUV.
