A man died after being ejected from his motorcycle in Queen Anne's County, Thursday night. 

According to police, Jeffrey Dwyer, 48, drove his motorcycle into the grassy area in the median on Route 301, lost control, and was ejected from his bike. 

Dwyer was taken to a local hospital where he later died. 

Route 301 was closed for several hours after the crash. 

Troopers are still investigating the cause of the crash. Alcohol has not yet been ruled out as a factor in the crash because an alcoholic beverage container was found close to the motorcycle at the scene.
