Police responded to an injury accident involving a Lexus sedan and a Yamaha YZ dirt bike at the intersection of Crain Highway and Jackson Avenue late Saturday night.
At approximately 11:15 p.m., authorities from Anne Arundel County Police say the driver of the dirt bike attempted to make a left-hand turn onto Jackson Ave. The driver of the sedan did not see the dirt bike, as police say it was operating illegally without lights at the time.
The dirt bike struck the passenger side of the Lexus, and the two dirt bike occupants were ejected. According to reports, neither the dirt bike driver nor passenger were wearing a helmet or protective gear.
The driver of the Lexus was identified as 23-year-old Cornelius Gordon, of Annapolis; the dirt bike driver was identified as 19-year-old Calvin Ronshaye Savoy, of Glen Burnie. Savoys passenger was identified as Charles William Sheffield, 19, also of Glen Burnie.
Savoy was transported to Shock Trauma for his injuries, while Sheffield was taken to an area hospital to treat injuries described as non-life threatening. Savoy is still listed in critical condition.
Gordon was treated on the scene by paramedics and only sustained minor injuries.
Police report that the cause of the crash was likely error on the part of the dirt bike driver. The dirt bike was unregistered and Savoy was not licensed at the time of the crash.
This serious accident is an important reminder to all drivers that operating any vehicle outside of state and federal laws can have serious consequences. The personal injury lawyers from Goldberg Finnegan encourage all drivers to use appropriate lights and signals at all times, but especially while traveling at night.
