A veteran Baltimore County career Fire lieutenant died early this morning in a motorcycle crash in Prince George's County. Another motorcyclist also died in this crash.

Hubert Harrison Jr., 63, has served with the Baltimore County Fire Department for nearly 29 years. He was promoted to Paramedic/Firefighter in 2004 and achieved the rank of lieutenant in 2009.

His most recent assignment was Fire Dispatch, where he was responsible for assigning equipment and personnel to emergency calls. He worked at Fire Dispatch in Towson last night and left when his shift ended at about 4 a.m. He apparently was on his way back to his home in Bowie when the fatal crash occurred.

"This is a terrible loss for the Fire Department and an even greater tragedy for Lt. Harrison's family," said Fire Chief John Hohman. "We offer heartfelt condolences to his wife and loved ones, and will offer all the support we can in the difficult days ahead."

The Prince George's County Police Department is handling the investigation. Preliminary information from PGPD indicates that the crash occurred at about 4:40 a.m. in the 11500 block of Laurel-Bowie Road. Harrison's 2014 Honda Goldwing motorcycle collided, head on, with another motorcycle. Both motorcyclists died at the scene.

Questions about the crash should be referred to PGPD.

On December 3 at 10 a.m., 20 Baltimore County Police Officers will be promoted. The ceremony will take place in the Theater on the CCBC Dundalk campus, 7200 Sollers Point Road, Dundalk 21222.

County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Chief James Johnson will join family and friends at the ceremony. Chief Johnson will present the certificates to the officers and the oath of office will be administered by Carol Miller, Deputy Clerk of the Circuit Court. The invocation and benediction will be offered by Police Chaplain, the Reverend Joseph Skillman.
