Shortly after 2:00 a.m., on Saturday, August 21, 2021, police, fire and rescue personnel responded to Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard and Grove Ridge Court in Linthicum Heights, for a collision involving a motorcycle.

Preliminary investigation revealed a Nissan SUV traveling northbound on Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard attempted to make a left turn onto Grove Ridge Court directly in front of a Harley Davidson motorcycle traveling southbound. As a result, the Nissan was struck by the Harley Davidson causing its operator to be thrown from the motorcycle.

The driver of the Nissan fled the scene on foot and remains at large after a lengthy search by responding officers. The additional three occupants of the Nissan were uninjured and remained at the crash site. Evidence on the scene helped identify the driver as Ronald Scott Clark, Jr of Severn, MD.
