From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
An Abingdon man is dead after a motorcycle crash Saturday morning in Harford County.
On March 30, 2018, at approximately 11:30 a.m., Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies assigned to the Southern Precinct were dispatched to the scene of a crash near the intersection of Abingdon Road and Windy Laurel Drive in Abingdon. Upon arrival, deputies discovered a single vehicle collision involving a motorcycle.
The driver of the motorcycle, and sole occupant, was transported by medics with the Bel Air Volunteer Fire Company to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he later died of his injuries. The operator is identified as Stephen Kenneth Block, 54, of Olde Woodland Way in Abingdon. Due to the severity of the crash, a motorcycle accident attorney was contacted by the victims family.
Preliminary information gathered at the scene indicates Block was driving a 2007 Harley MC motorcycle east on Abingdon Road, when a silver minivan traveling west on Abingdon Road turned in front of the motorcycle onto Windy Laurel Drive. To avoid a collision, Block laid his motorcycle down on the roadway. The van continued on and did not stop at the scene of the crash. Police have not been able to identify the driver of the van and suspect that alcohol might have been the cause of the accident.
According to the personal injury lawyer in charge of the case anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has any information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit at 443-409-3324.
