A Maryland man, Benjamin Lovell Brabham, 30, died earlier today after he wrecked the 2007 Honda motorcycle he was driving. The collision was reported shortly after 7:30 a.m., according to state police.
Troopers from the Golden Ring Barrack responded to the scene in less than 10 minutes. By the time they arrived, emergency medical personnel were already on the scene and were loading Brabham into an ambulance.
He was transported to Bayview Hospital. Brabham was pronounced dead by attending physician, Dr. Yanagawa, shortly after 8:00 a.m.
During the preliminary investigation, troopers were able to determine that Brabham was traveling north on the Interstate 95 ramp to the Inner Loop of Interstate 695. At some point, Brabham lost control of the motorcycle. Troopers said he was ejected and struck the pavement, sustaining blunt force trauma. At the time of the crash, he was wearing a helmet approved by the DOT.
At this time, no witnesses to the crash have been identified. Therefore, Maryland State Police are still uncertain as to what may have caused Brabham to lose control of the motorcycle. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is encouraged to contact Tfc Trevor Kozlow with the Golden Ring Barrack by calling 410-780-2700.
