The operator of a motorcycle involved in a crash in Essex tonight has died.

The motorcyclist was traveling southbound on Route 702 around 5:13 p.m. when it struck the passenger side rear quarter panel of a 2013 Nissan Maxima making a left turn onto East Homberg Avenue from northbound Route 702.

The operator of the motorcycle was ejected and pronounced deceased at the scene by medics. He is identified as Michael Johnson (49) of the 1000 block of Foxcroft Lane, 21221.

The Baltimore County Police Crash Investigation Team is continuing their crash reconstruction efforts to determine the factors involved in this fatal crash.

Route 702 at East Homberg Avenue in Essex was closed through the afternoon commute while Baltimore County Police Crash Team investigators were on the scene of a serious crash, resulting in the death of an 83-year-old man.

The preliminary investigation indicates that just before 2:40 p.m. a Toyota Corolla was traveling westbound on East Homberg Avenue crossing Route 702 when it was struck on the passenger side by a Dodge Charger traveling southbound on Route 702, causing the Corolla to roll.

The driver of the Charger, a 32-year-old man, was transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries by Maryland State Police Medevac.
