According to The Baltimore Sun, 23-year-old Ryan Myers, the son of Maryland State Delegate LeRoy Myers, was killed in a motorcycle accident that involved with a tractor-trailer in Washington County, Maryland, late on Thursday afternoon shortly after 5:30 p.m. Police think that motorcycle speeding may have been a factor in the fatal motorcycle accident.
Myers was riding his motorcycle on Md. 63, just north of I-70, allegedly speeding. When a big rig pulled out from a truck stop parking lot and into his path heading north, driven by 62-year-old Larry Garrett, Myers skid on his bike for 300 feet and into the path of the truck. The left side of the truck ran over the man’s legs. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the motorcycle accident.
Myers was riding a 2001 Yamaha motorcycle, while the truck driver was driing a 2007 Kenworth 18-wheeler.
“No one knows the pain that a family goes through at a time like this,” the Myers family released in a statement. “Ryan was a precious son that only wanted to please.”
The investigation is ongoing, and no charges have been filed. A viewing and funeral for Ryan Myers will be held next week at the Tri-State Fellowship Church. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, mourners can make memorial donations to Grace Academy, a school in Hagerstown, Maryland.
