The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER -

Two mo­tor­cy­clists were killed in a multi-ve­hi­cle crash late Fri­day on In­ter­state 695 near Bal­ti­more.

Both were men from the Wash­ing­ton area, one from Prince Ge­orge’s County and the other from Mont­gomery County. Their iden­ti­ties were be­ing with­held pend­ing no­ti­fi­ca­tion of their fam­i­lies.

Four other peo­ple in­volved in the in­ci­dent were taken to hos­pi­tals.

Mary­land State Po­lice re­ceived calls from mo­torists re­port­ing a crash shortly af­ter 11 p.m. Fri­day on the in­ner loop of the Bal­ti­more Belt­way, just be­fore the Spar­rows Point exit, south­east of the city.

A pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Mary­land State Po­lice showed that the driver of a black mo­tor­cy­cle lost con­trol of his ve­hi­cle for un­known rea­sons and drove into the back of a con­struc­tion ve­hi­cle, po­lice said. The driver of the black mo­tor­cy­cle then veered into four other mo­tor­cy­cles, caus­ing them to crash.
