the reason for the accident is for the police to investigate and determine. Speculation on the cause would be inappropriate. Many things such as sleep deprivation, phones, radios, medical conditions, mechanical failure, even reading or doing makeup , pot holes, the list is endless all can lead to distraction and or loss of control.

Reading or doing make up while driving? Geez, that's really no better. The only excuses there that would be viable, IMO, are medical conditions and mechanical failure. If the person has a medical condition and is not treating it or taking their medication, it might be a little different, though. I hope the details come out, but somehow, I doubt they will. You would think something like mechanical failure would have been included in the article. If a tire blew out, for example, and caused this accident, that's and open and shut case really and I would think would be mentioned. I await further details, if we even get them.

Mark, What Zip Code map shows it in 21087? 21087 ends at the RR tracks. The 12200 block is all 21085.
Mark Lundin October 15, 2012 at 08:52 PM
Google Maps. But I just looked at several others and they show what you mention, so Google appears wrong.

Wow, if all of these people would put as much effort in telling the government that we are tired of the B/S they give us. then maybe Maryland would'nt be such a bad place to live.

What possible difference could it make whether the pedestrian was struck in Kingsville, White Marsh, Joppatowne, Middle River, wherever? A person was hit by a car. That's what you should be discussing.

Person at accident said the POS never checked on victom but walked around her car looking at damage. Please if anyone knows of a way to get more info please post it. Very tramatic for responder and closure on condition would be appriciated. Noseinabk2@gmail.com
Mike Fisher October 16, 2012 at 02:15 AM
Just curious, nose2, but where are you getting this information? Not saying it's wrong, just wanted to know where you heard it?
Bill Howard October 16, 2012 at 02:43 AM
Another case of people need to slow down and pay attention! If you see a middle-aged guy hugging the speed limit (and 10 under in the rain) that's me so don't be mad or tail gait.
Mike Pierce October 16, 2012 at 02:48 AM
Other Tim, To those of us who live in Kingsville, we don't want it reported that bad things are happening here when they are not.

Mike . Know a person who was present at the scene. Cant give away much. Just first hand account that the guy was chilling out after small bike repare. Maybe he was watching the local bge guys replace a pole. Maybe the guy was sitting in the grass taking pictures. Maybe the Pos driver was not paying attention and lost control, hit a mailbox,went off road and hit guy. However the driver who did not have the smarts to hit her brakes also did not ever let go of her phone as it was in her hand when she came to a stop. Sorry if sloppy post but suxs posting on mobile. Again,jf anyone has info to find this poor guy or knows how to get it pm me . update pm me. On scene
Mike Fisher October 16, 2012 at 03:02 AM
Speeding doesn't cause people to take out mailboxes and pedestrians. I don't know why people keep bringing up speeding like it's some primary cause. Paying attention, however, is. Talking on cell phones as well as anything else that causes you to take your eyes or your full attention off the road is. I just hope the person hit is ok and going 10mph under the speed limit makes you a hazard on the road. Knock it off. If you can't at the very least go the speed limit, then don't drive.
Mike Fisher October 16, 2012 at 03:11 AM
Why can't you give away much? I don't understand. A ticket for negligent driving and an additional ticket for the cell phone? Wow, really coming down hard on the REAL dangerous drivers, aren't we? All people want to do is talk about speeding this, speeding that, blah blah. Talking on your cell phone while driving is just as much of a hazard as a drunk driver is. This isn't exactly knocking the consequence nail home for the law against using your cell phone while driving, is it? I know, why don't we put up more speed cameras because that will solve *everything*. What a joke. Assuming of course, that what you are saying is true.
Big T. October 16, 2012 at 10:50 PM
I may be wrong,but this person asking for info sounds like they may have been the one driving and texting. Guilt can be an ugly thing. Hope that I am wrong.
Mike Fisher October 17, 2012 at 01:00 AM
Me? Wow, talk about making wild assumptions. I can't question his source without being accused of such atrocities? Pretty lame. He has claimed twice now to have inside information and it's not coming from the police, so why wouldn't I question him before replying to his claims? Ridiculous.
Big T. October 17, 2012 at 09:38 PM
I was referring to the other person Nose.... something. any how, why would someone say they have inside info then not give up details when asked. people post on this thing and get someones atttention then want to keep secrets. if they saw anything that happened then they should be willing to share this info so others will know that there are this type of person in our neighborhoods. total desreguard for others and life itself.
Mike Fisher October 17, 2012 at 09:41 PM
Ohh, well you said the person "asking" for information, not giving information. I was the only one asking, my bad then. I was wondering that, too. It seems weird that he "didn't want to give away too much", why would you say that? He could be involved or maybe he's a police officer or something. Either way, I found that odd as well. If I was the one there gathering information, I'd spill it all for everyone to know.

kathy October 18, 2012 at 03:56 AM

Hey guys, I did get a chance to touch base with police. No information from police on how the cyclist is doing. But I did confirm some details of what people were hearing. http://essex.patch.com/articles/fatigue-caused-sunday-pulaski-highway-crash-police-say

Oh my gosh people, get a life. It's always the same people "commenting" on Patch.
PerryHallParent October 18, 2012 at 08:21 PM
So, you are on here often enough to know how often the "same people" are "commenting" on Patch, so you make a post to let us know how often you check. Hilarious!
tack8 October 18, 2012 at 08:30 PM
You all say the same things about every article! It's like a tape recorder. I only check to see what may be affecting my neighborhood, [ossibly things that may not be in the article, that have been discovered. AND I don't comment on every darn thing I read. that's my complaint, the same people b***h about anything and everything. Get a life. I actually do things besides read and comment on here, do you?
Big T. October 18, 2012 at 10:31 PM
As amazing as this is, if you were to put everyone who posted on this ,in a room they would probably not talk at all. What the Hell it was fun for a while.Enjoy!!!
Mike Fisher October 19, 2012 at 07:35 PM
Then don't read it and stop whining like a big baby. The people who comment a lot care about their community and have something to say about things that happen in it, that's the whole point of this website. All you've done is whine and complain about the people posting. Don't read it, then. You contribute nothing to the conversation. Go life your amazingly interesting life, what are you even doing on the internet? Don't like what you read? Don't read it and stop whining and crying ya big baby.

Mickey we are glad to hear that he will recove from his injuries. Wishing him a speedy recovery
leonardtown October 29, 2012 at 05:55 PM
I am the driver who hit this innocent man. I was not talking or texting on my cell phone. I grabbed my phone while exiting my car to call 911, I did not know what i had hit so I looked at the front of my vehicle when i then realized it was a human being. I was in complete shock. Several people had already came to his aid. I was so afraid to even get close to this person i had struck, seeing that he was severely injured. I have prayed for this gentleman everyday and thank the lord he has survived. I am extremely haunted by this nightmare which is my own reality every second. I was extremely fatigued that morning and will deal with this guilt and shame for the rest of my life. I pray that God gives him and his family the strength they need to recover from this so painful and regretful accident.

Gosh, are you the one that witnessed the poor guy in the motorcycle accident too. You must see a lot of bad things happen to people. First time poster.
EriKa I-Net August 05, 2013 at 05:26 AM
He is ok :) has had many surgeries and has had a rough year but he is doing a lot better. He still has a few surgeries to go but he is a fighter and has a positive attitude.
