July 29, 2018



UPDATE 7/30/2018 @ 6:00 a.m.: On July 29, 2018, at approximately 6:50 p.m., deputies from the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 21000 block of Three Notch Road, in the area of FDR Boulevard in Lexington Park, for the reported motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle.

Responding deputies found a sport utility vehicle and a motorcycle in the roadway. The Collision Reconstruction Unit responded to the scene and continued the investigation.

Preliminary investigation determined a 2014 Toyota Highlander, operated by Kevin James Wolfe, 51 of Leonardtown, was struck by a 2004 Suzuki GSX R1000 motorcycle operated by William Antonio Briscoe, 31 of Lexington Park.

Briscoe was traveling southbound on Three Notch Road, and failed to stop at a red traffic signal at the intersection of FDR Boulevard. Briscoe collided with the Toyota which was crossing the southbound lanes of Three Notch Road to continue northbound, on a green traffic signal. Briscoe was ejected from the motorcycle and was pronounced deceased on the scene. Wolfe and two juvenile passengers suffered non-incapacitating injuries. Witness accounts indicate speed and failure to obey a traffic control device to be contributing factors in the accident.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision that has not yet provided a statement to law enforcement is asked to contact Cpl. Brian Connelly at (301) 475-4200 extension *8031, or by email at Brian.Connelly@stmarysmd.com.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is investigating, and will provide more information as it becomes available.

    This is terrible. Unfortunately I knew this was going to happen. The motorcycles were right beside me at a red light at Pegg Rd and Three Notch. When the light turned green, they raced full speed toward the next intersection. Unfortunately there was an SUV in the intersection and the motorcycle had no where to go and was going to fast to stop. Prayers go out to the young man’s family. This is such a tragedy. May he rest in peace.

    Looks similar to one of the bikes that were trying to hold up traffic at Route 5 and Mattawomen Beantown road heading toward Hugesville. If it’s one in the same there was also a black chevy Tahoe that was helping by swerving back and forth between MWBR and the turn into Nicks….

    Clearly, at least one of those vehicles was going well over the 45 mph speed limit in that area.

    • I seent it on July 29, 2018 at 10:08 pm

      Clearly you are 100% correct. When they blew by Wendys they were doing 100+. I was 30 seconds behind them. What amazes me is how everyone doesnt understand how it happed. I do. A car cannot see you when your at 150mph plus. They look and your not there. They pull out and wham, appears a motorcycle midway through the vehicle.

        *you’re*, not “you a smart ass”.

        Given the amount of damage to both vehicles, it IS apparent that at least one of them was speeding. I withheld any speculation and assumption that the motorcycle rider was at fault. I could have just said “dumb crotch rocket jockey” but I chose to wait until more details came out. So which one of us was making an assumption, “Mike dun”?

        If that guy cared at all for his family, he wouldn’t have been riding recklessly, and without regard for his own safety or that of other people on the road.

        You can crawl back under your rock now, you’re dismissed.

        So he wasn’t driving more than the posted speed limit? Look at that SUV; it was destroyed. This guy was moving and caused this horrific crash.

      • Anonymous on July 30, 2018 at 3:39 pm

        Of course, he should. It’s a tragedy that this guy lost his life. However, as much as motorcyclists and their families and friends urge everyone to be aware of them on the road, they also have a role in being aware of their driving and lawlessness. This is a clear case where his unfortunate negligence cost him his life and could have hurt many others. Mr. Briscoe’s family certainly would rather have him alive than used as a teaching lesson, but I’m sure they wouldn’t mind something good to come out of this.

    I suspect the victim was part of a group of a half-dozen that blew past me heading south on Three Notch Road from a red light at Chancellors Run. I had pulled out of the Sheetz, with an empty road from the stopped traffic. As I reached going 45 MPH, the group of bikes came weaving around cars at a very high rate of speed (well north of 60 mph, probably higher). Some were held up at the next red light, but that quickly changed to green and they took off; I didn’t see the pack again, until I reached the accident scene.

  10. Anonymous on July 29, 2018 at 10:53 pm

    That much damage is indicative of a high speed collision. I’ve seen people on these motorcycles doing well over 100 mph up and down Great Mills Road before and they all think it’s fun and games until they wreck.

  11. Anonymous on July 29, 2018 at 11:27 pm

    I was right next to these guys at the light as well when they took off. It’s true that they were just going too fast to make a safe stop, and that SUV was just crossing the intersection at that time. Sad…hope this can at the very least serve as a reminder of the dangers of speeding in excess. Prayers.

    • Speed Racer on July 30, 2018 at 6:00 am

      Sadly this will not deter the speeders at all and they will claim everyone else should watch out for them. I hate that they lost their life over a small thrill but CARMA is a bitch.

    • AliceW on July 30, 2018 at 6:33 pm

      If you look at the North face of the South West corner pole at 235/245 you will see several black marks. Those were put there by a like bike over ten years ago. Two weeks before that I wrote a letter to the State Police Barracks T complaining about the same activity including wheelies both directions at245 and Starbucks. Apparently there are not enough resources to control this as the same excessive speeding bikes are seen around noon weekly in the Starbucks area. Everyone needs to write the State Police and get traffic cameras that can capture plates at numerous spots along the road. Also cars are now entering intersections after the light is red, this needs to be stopped as well. Run the violation fees up to a grand or more till the problem is fixed.

      • bill on July 31, 2018 at 7:59 am

        You do realize that automated enforcement, cameras, are restricted by state law from only enforcing two things. One is red lights, which the SHA has already determined are not needed on Rt 235, and speeding. Which can only be placed in school zones. So there are no cameras that can do what you ask.

  12. Oh well on July 29, 2018 at 11:51 pm

      As a responsible sport bike owner I can attest to the thrill of speed- but it has a place, and public roads are not the place.

      Though I am sorry to learn a fellow rider lost his life via the thrill of the machine, his actions do not reflect the views of responsible riders like myself.

      Sport bikes are enjoyable and economic – but they must be respected for what they are to be used for. This was clearly his oversight. I am sorry there were other victims of his wreckless behavior.

    • Easy Rider on July 30, 2018 at 5:33 pm

      No. Dont ban steet bikes. Just enforce compliance. The actions of one shouldnt have to make us all suffer. I ride a normal street bike back and forth to work every day (in the heat, in the cold, and in the rain.) You cannot beat 50mph and $800 for insurance for the year.

    • John Doe on July 31, 2018 at 11:35 am

  20. Anonymous on July 30, 2018 at 7:23 am

    Damage like that means the bike was probably close to 100mph, if not over. Its bikers like this with no regard for themselves or others that give the “normal” bikers a bad reputation. If this collision happened at the posted speed limit, he would likely still be alive. Then again, if he didn’t have a thirst for speed and poor choices, this wouldn’t have happened in the first place. From one motorcycle rider to the rest of the world: Don’t let this guy’s actions speak for all of us. If you make bad choices, bad things happen.

Immaturity and a powerful crotch rocket are a deadly combination. Hopefully his buddies learn from this and decide their life, family, and friends are way more important then going fast and trying to act cool.

    Right or wrong, a man is dead! His family must now bury their son, and his kids must now grow up without a father.

    Everyone needs to stop being so hateful, he made a bad choice and paid with his life. When did we become so consumed with hatred for our neighbors that we can’t stop and provide condolences instead of opinions and judgments.

    Additionally, I am sorry to the driver and his kids that will forever remember this day!

    RIP Bos Tommy

    How much sympathy are you supposed to have for a person who willingly put themselves (and other innocent people) at risk and then pays for it accordingly? I mean yes, it’s sad someone died …… but personally, I am thankful that death only came to him and not anyone else. It could have been far worse. Personally, while I am certainly saddened because a family has lost one of its members, at the end of the day, the ONLY person at fault here is the operator of the bike. No other way to spin it.

    Its truly sad about the driver of the bike. Lets also keep in mind the driver of the SUV and his two young passengers are also “victims” in this mishap. They were a part of someone dying violently first hand. While it appears they were not at fault, they are still going to have to live with what occurred for a long time.

    As a biker from Southern MD for over 15+ years it’s really sad to see what the Park has come to with these bikers. How are you riding up and down 235 racing with the traffic lights in & out of traffic. Sadly this is what happens. Other riders that were riding should half stepped in and gave him advice or been the smarter rider. I hate seeing this which all should have been prevented. Prayers u for the family.

    This man had a family, friends, loved ones. How dare any of you say terrible things about him just because he enjoyed riding a motorcycle! He was just out enjoying a beautiful day, not knowing that it would be his last. He never got to say goodbye to his children. His children will never hear his voice, have him tuck them into bed. No more Christmas mornings. He won’t be there when his daughter plays basketball or runs track. Hopefully he will be able to watch over and guide his family from above.

      No, shame on you. He wasn’t “just out enjoying a beautiful day,” he was racing at an unbelievably excessive rate of speed and putting in danger anyone else on the road who was “just out enjoying a beautiful day” and obeying the law. Like the poor people in the SUV. “No more Christmas mornings,” eh. Maybe he should have thought of that before he did what he did. There’s no one to blame here but the motorcyclist and people like you who “boo hoo” after the fact and enable beforehand. Who the hell are you to preach?

      “This man had a family, friends, loved ones.” So did the people he hit and they did nothing to deserve this. Luckily they didn’t get killed but with his reckless actions that could have easily happened. A tragedy is something that happens unexpectedly, the way this guy (and his buddies) drive around here it was only a matter of time before this happened to one of them.

      1/2 of a second, that’s my guess. If the Toyota had pulled out a half second earlier, or if the rider left the previous red light a half second later, that bike, which was going most likely over 120 mph, would have hit the passenger doors of that Highlander rather than the front end. At that speed, at least one if not all of the innocent people inside would have been killed.

      Sounds like perfect justification for making whatever disparaging comments we want about some guy whose rap sheet shows his willful disregard for the safety of others on the road.

    • Bill on August 1, 2018 at 11:27 am

      5 to 15 over? Limit there is 45. 15 over would be 60. No way in hell was that bike going 60. If it was under 100, I would be shocked. So, no, not many of us have travlled 55mph over the limit. And those of us who have most likely have done it on less travelled roads, not one filled with stop lights and cross traffic.

    I owned motorcycles for many years, and understand the thrill of riding fast. I had a serious motorcycle crash, which didn’t involve anyone else and was my own fault. It happened riding a sport bike fast on a dark road, late at night. It was a hard lesson that has stayed with me. When I see riders doing 100 mph up the road and weaving in and out of cars, I often wonder if they’ve ever experienced a motorcycle crash. I suspect most of these riders haven’t and so they still feel invincible, like I did. Think it can’t happen ? I thought that too. So to all the riders out there who like to ride fast, how about slowing down a little bit, so you can live to see tomorrow, and so your loved ones can have you here longer.

    I am appalled and literally sick to my stomach at these self-righteous comments. For all of these people who are on here disparaging this mans character and being totally insensitive to the loss of a life is hateful, and you should all be ashamed of yourself. I personally know this man, as an acquaintance and he had a heart of gold that would put all of you to shame. One indiscretion, that is tragic and could have been any of your siblings, children or relatives who made this terrible mistake and you would have to feel the heartache of people’s depraved criticism and condescending comments. None of you are perfect and just because you haven’t made the same mistake as him, doesn’t mean you haven’t made a mistake, and who are you to say weigh what mistake is worse than another. Humble yourselves before you have to eat the words you have said later and your child or brother or sister is killed in a similar fashion and people treat you with the same disregard and disrespect as you have shown this man and his family.

    • Guess Who on August 7, 2018 at 1:04 pm

      Yeah – these “conflagrations” are so upsetting.

      The beltway has one advantage over 235. Most drivers know to stay right if you are slower than the traffic pace of your lane. Easy huh?

      Not in SoMD. It is a pride thing for everyone to think they are the absolute king of the highway, the left-most lane is theirs, and moving right is considered a degradation to their social class.

      No need for them to have rear-view mirrors, since they care for NOBODY else.

      For example:

      Is somebody tailgating, wanting to move by them to go faster?
      Flashing their headlights?
      Sounding their horns?
      Not a matter AT ALL!

      THEY – set the speed of the road and consider ONLY their plans.

      Because – “dey” is “da KING”!
