A fatal motor vehicle crash in Glen Burnie killed one person yesterday evening.

On Friday, around 9:22 pm, officers headed to Point Pleasant Road and Furnace Branch Road for a reported accident.

Police say Ford Taurus traveling eastbound on Point Pleasant Road was attempting to turn left into the 7-Eleven convenience store, when it was struck by a Suzuki motorcycle traveling westbound.

The motorcyclist Larry Leroy Vanmeter III, 29, was transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. The driver and passengers from the Ford Taurus were not injured in the collision.

Investigators say the primary cause of the crash appears to be the driver of the motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed with no lights activated.

Additionally, alcohol on the part of the motorcyclist may have been a contributing factor in the collision, which remains under investigation.
