On August 16 at 11 p.m., officers responded to a motor vehicle crash involving an SUV and a motorcycle. A preliminary investigation showed the driver of a Chevrolet Traverse was making a left turn from Middletown Road onto Billingsley Road when the driver struck a motorcycle which was travelling north on Middletown Road. When the Traverse struck the motorcycle, it caused the motorcycle to hit a Honda Civic, which was stopped at a red traffic signal on Billingsley Road at the intersection of Middletown Road.  The operator of the motorcycle, a 30-year-old man from Waldorf, was ejected and critically injured. He was flown by US Park Police to a trauma center and is in critical condition. Members of the Traffic Operations Unit responded to the crash and assumed the investigation.
