A Capi­tol Heights man died af­ter crash­ing his mo­tor­cy­cle while rid­ing north­bound on Brandy­wine Road in Ac­co­keek last Thurs­day night.

Mary­land State Po­lice said Ger­ald Re­shad Stock­ton, 30, was on Route 5 north of Brandy­wine Road in the left lane when he lost con­trol of his 2004 Honda CBR1000 mo­tor­cy­cle and trav­eled into the cen­ter me­dian at ap­prox­i­mately 8:40 p.m. Thurs­day. There was no cur­rent reg­is­tra­tion plate listed to the mo­tor­cy­cle, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Ac­cord­ing to a Mar yland State Po­lice press re­lease, Stock­ton was ejected from the ve­hi­cle and was trans-

ported to MedS­tar South­ern

Mary­land Hos­pi­tal, where he was pro­nounced dead by hos­pi­tal staff.

The road­way in the area of the col­li­sion was shut down for ap­prox­i­mately two hours, while emer­gency crews and col­li­sion in­ves­ti­ga­tors sur­veyed the scene. Mary­land State Po­lice were as­sisted by Prince Ge­orge’s County Fire and EMS and the Mary­land State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“At this time we do not know if drugs or al­co­hol played a fac­tor in this crash. We won’t know un­til the au­topsy comes back,” said duty of­fi­cer Sgt. Graves of the Mary­land State Po­lice.
